In recent years, the ponytail palm tree has become a popular houseplant and it is easy to see why. Its sleek bulb-like trunk and lush, long curly leaves make it visually stunning; and the fact that a ponytail palm is forgiving and easy in its care makes this an ideal houseplant for many people.
Oddly enough, a ponytail palm tree is neither a palm nor a tree but is a member of the Agave family and is actually a succulent. Typically Pony Tail Palms need bright light but will also tolerate partial low light.
As a succulent, it grows best in semi-dry conditions and when grown as a houseplant, the soil should dry out significantly in between waterings.
