Beaucarnea recurvata 'Ponytail palm'
Common names: Ponytail Palm, Elephant's Foot
The Ponytail palm gets its sweet name from grassy leaves stemming from a robust bulb that looks a bit like hair cascading from a ponytail. While this plant is called a palm, it is actually a succulent, and that bulb is where it stores water for long periods of time. The Ponytail palm is easy-to-care-for as it is very drought tolerant, non-toxic, and just wants bright light.
