Ponytail Palm 'Beaucarnea Recurvata' 13cm Zinc Pot
Beaucarnea recurvata, which is also known as the Elephant's Foot, is an evergreen succulent plant with a dense topknot of sword-shaped leaves which cascade down around the thick, trunk-like stem, giving rise to Beaucarnea's other, perhaps more elegant name, of the Ponytail Palm.
A native of Mexico, the Ponytail Palm is an exceptionally robust houseplant and makes a great ornamental feature in your home.
Often treated as a bonsai, they are ideal for beginners who want a slow growing, low maintenance plant.
Needing very little in the way of care, simply providing light and a little water will ensure that your plant will flourish for years - perfect for those of us who tend to forget about their plants.
Extremely hardy, Beaucarnea recurvata thrives in any light position, (as long as it is protected from midday summer sun), so it will be perfectly happy if kept outdoors in the summer and brought in for the winter - the perfect solution.
With the potential to reach 1.5m in 20 years, your plant is delivered approx. 30cm tall in a 13cm zinc pot - this easy-care houseplant is perfect for instant impact and social media sharing.
These plants dislike overwatering, so let the compost get quite dry before repeating the process again.
Keep your Ponytail Palm growing well with a weekly watering making sure the excess water drains away freely.
Add a general purpose, soluble plant food to the water every two weeks. Repot only when necessary, using a pot only a few centimetres wider than the bulbous base. Any brown tips on the leaves can be snipped off with a sharp pair of scissors.
