A native of southeastern Mexico, the Ponytail Palm is not a palm at all. It is actually a member of the lily family and, also goes by Bottle Palm and Elephant’s Foot.

One of the Ponytails unique features is the swollen base of the trunk. The texture of the trunk looks and feels like an elephant’s foot. Clusters of long strap-like leaves that arch and droop extend from the trunk giving the impression of a palm. Ponytails make great indoor Bonsais and, are ideal for beginners. They are easy to care for and slow-growers.

The Ponytail Palm’s extraordinarily thick trunk serves as a reservoir, storing water against dry spells and, making it very drought tolerate. This feature allows the tree to last up to four weeks without water causing no ill effects. Ponytails generally need to be watered every couple of weeks.

These bonsai plants like misting. Avoid putting your Bonsai near a draft or vent, which dries out the foliage. A humidity tray is a great way to increase humidity. These shallow trays filled with small stones have water in the bottom of the tray. Make sure the water does not reach the bottom of the Bonsai pot. As the water evaporates, it creates a moister environment.
