The Ponytail Palm is drought tolerant, slow-growing, and requires very little care. This plant is ideal for people with very little time or who travel regularly. The Ponytail Palm will be perfectly happy being watered every couple of weeks and left alone to soak up the sunlight.
Your Ponytail Palm prefers bright indirect light to full sun but can adapt to medium light.
Water your Ponytail Palm when the soil is completely dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.
As with most succulents, your Ponytail Palm will thrive in dry conditions. The drier the air, the better!
Protect your palm from cold drafts from windows, air conditioning vents, or doors. This plant prefers normal room temperatures between 15-25 degrees. p>
For best results, use a general houseplant fertilizer only once in the spring and once in the summer. Any more than that and your Ponytail Palm may develop brown tips on the leaves.
Completely non-toxic to humans and pets.
Your Ponytail Palm leaves are sensitive to injury and tend to get dark at the ends. Cutting back the tips of the leaves is a good way to preserve the appearance of the plant. The key is to use a sharp scissors to cut off just the discoloured parts.
