Beaucarnea recurvata, which is also known as the Elephant's Foot, is an evergreen succulent plant with a dense topknot of sword-shaped leaves which cascade down around the thick, trunk-like stem, giving rise to Beaucarnea's other, perhaps more elegant name, of the Ponytail Palm.
A native of Mexico, the Ponytail Palm is an exceptionally robust houseplant and makes a great ornamental feature in your home.
Often treated as a bonsai, they are ideal for beginners who want a slow growing, low maintenance plant.
Needing very little in the way of care, simply providing light and a little water will ensure that your plant will flourish for years - perfect for those of us who tend to forget about their plants.
Extremely hardy, Beaucarnea recurvata thrives in any light position, (as long as it is protected from midday summer sun), so it will be perfectly happy if kept outdoors in the summer and brought in for the winter - the perfect solution.
With the potential to reach 1.5m in 20 years, your plant is delivered in a 13cm zinc pot, this easy-care houseplant is perfect for instant impact and social media sharing.
