GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Beaucarnea recurvata, the elephant's foot or ponytail palm, is a species of plant in the family Asparagaceae, native to the states of Tamaulipas, Veracruz, and San Luis Potosí in eastern Mexico.
  • Despite its common name, it is not closely related to the true palms.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Like most succulents, the ponytail palm prefers dry soil conditions and therefore does not need to be watered very often.
  • In fact, overwatering is the primary reason why these plants fail to thrive.
  • To water ponytail palms correctly, you should allow their soil to dry out between waterings.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Use an organic liquid fertilizer or a chemical fertilizer diluted to 1/2 strength.
  • Ponytail Palms should be fertilized once or twice per month during the growing season and once a month in the winter.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • The Ponytail Palm technically needs bright light and can tolerate full sun most of the day.
  • However, this plant is so forgiving that it will be perfectly happy if you give it low light half the year and bright sunlight the other half.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Since this plant is a succulent, it's best to keep it in semi-dry conditions.
  • Let the soil dry out completely in between waterings—perhaps watering once every 2-3 weeks.
  • Water sparingly in the winter months.
  • As with most succulents, your Ponytail Palm will thrive in dry conditions.
