Ponytail Palm | Beaucarnea recurvata
 
Ponytail Palm
Plant Features:
Ponytail palm's best quality is how easy it is to grow: As long as you don't overwater it, the plant may seem virtually indestructible. It's a slow grower that's perfect for just about any room of the home, especially bedrooms. A small ponytail palm looks fabulous on tabletops. It has a spare appearance that makes it fantastic for contemporary and modern interior designs, but ponytail palm also looks great in more casual settings, such as country and eclectic looks.

Ponytail palm tolerates low light and infrequent watering, but grows best in bright spots and regular watering. Because it's a slow grower, small specimens of ponytail palm are a wonderful choice for side tables, end tables, or coffee tables.

If leaf tips turn brown, simply clip off the brown parts with a sharp scissors to keep the plant from looking unsightly.
