I love this plant and it is even better as a Kokedama.
The Ponytail Palm (Beaucarnea recurvata) is a very hardy, happy to be left alone, actually please leave me alone, plant that lives out doors. This is one of the few plants that my wife (a plant killer) has kept alive for 5+ years. 😂
Ponytail palms prefer to have as much light as possible, so place the plant in a bright location. Think, back deck or on a stand on the back table. Bright, indirect sunlight is best.
☀️ Tolerates full sun - part shade. What the heck does that mean? Well, it means a location that will allow the plant to get full sun for part of the day but then also gives them some respite from the sun with a shady location as the sun moves throughout the day. Full sun - part shade. This plant would also be ok on a covered patio or light filled sunny room indoors (although would do well with some time outdoors too)
💧 Keep soil fairly dry - which is why this plant is a great option for people who forget to water their plants. Allowing the moss ball to get very dry re-watering.
Truth be told, mine is outside and gets watered when it rains. You just have to make sure that it doesn't get water logged so a weatherproof stand is essential (we can help you with that - fits all of our metal stands).
The bulb of the pony tail palm is what grows and you will see over time that it grows up and out of the moss ball. They grow very slowly so this will be a friend for life.
If you like the look of the arid landscape and are after a low maintenance plant that is a talking piece, then this is the guy for you.
🐈🐩 Cats & Dogs + Ponytail Palm are friends. This plant is NOT toxic to pets
⚠️ The leaves have sharp edges and have been known to break the skin
The Ponytail Palm Kokedama that is in the picture is the one that is available however it will be finished with either white or black nylon twine to extend the longevity of ball. We could even wrap this to hang if you'd prefer. If you'd like to hang it, we can help with that too with an option for hanging in the pricing.
