My name is Beaucarnea recurvata but I am also known as Ponytail Palm, Bottle Palm, Monja, Elephant Foot Palm or Palma culona. I have thin curly, bright green fountain-like foliage on a large, domed “stump,” which tapers off into a thinner stem. I am a desert plant native to Mexico but I was grown in Florida and am so happy to be going to my new home. I can grow between 5-6 feet tall and will add beautiful full, green look to your home.
My personality is wild, tropical, grand and architectural. I give the tropical look of a palm although I am of a different family of agaves and yuccas. I am tall and bushy so make sure to put me in a location with plenty of space. You can place me in living rooms, hallways, bedrooms, offices, conference rooms, or anywhere with plenty of light. If you place me against walls such as room corners, rotate my container so all of the foliage gets even light.
Light: Bright, indirect light.
Water: 24 oz. once a week
