Ponytail palm: how to care for, how often to water, how to repot, propagate, and other ponytail palm questions answered
The ponytail palm ( Beaucarnea recurvata) is a unique and interesting-looking houseplant that is native to Mexico. It gets its common name from its long, thin leaves that cascade down from the top of the plant like a ponytail. The ponytail palm is a slow-growing plant, but it can eventually reach heights of 6-10 feet tall. While it is related to true palms, the ponytail palm is actually more closely related to agaves and yuccas.
