Beaucarnea recurvata

Regular price £80.00 £0.00

This kooky and unique-looking plant is easy to care for and even thrives on a bit of neglect. It comes from eastern Mexico - it's bulbous trunk which holds water is testament to how it has adapted to survive dry desert-like conditions. It can withstand drought and loves bright light, just make sure you don't overwater it. 

The common name 'palm' is a bit of a misnomer: Ponytails are more closely related to Yuccas and Agave plants. It's unlikely that you'll have to repot anytime soon as these guys are very slow growers. They have super long lifespans, so take good care of yours and it could be a friend for years to come.

Keep water to a bare minimum. Half a cup once every 3 weeks in winter and 2 weeks in summer is probably enough
