Palm, Ponytail (Beaucarnea Recurvata)
Ponytail Palm is actually a succulent more closely related to the Yucca. Snip off brown leaf tips with sharp scissors or pruners. Slow-growing, it can take 20 years to reach 6 ft indoors and it rarely needs repotting. When transplanting use a fast-draining medium such as cactus potting mix as well as a heavy pot to prevent falling over with too much top growth.
Bright light to full sun.
Its swollen base stores water, so occasional lack of water will do no harm. If you’re forgetful about watering, this may be the ideal house plant for you! In fact, the most common mistake with this plant is over-watering it, especially in winter. Allow it to thoroughly dry down between waterings.
For optimum plant health, fertilize with an all-purpose houseplant food April through October, following label directions. For all other months, fertilize half as often.
