Beaucarnea recurvata (elephant s foot, ponytail palm) is a species of plant in the family Asparagaceae, native to the states of Tamaulipas, Veracruz and San Luis

Common name: Elephantopus carolinianus
Color: white
Bloom time: August to September
Height: 2.00 to 3.00 feet
Difficulty level: easy to grow

Planting & Care
Mature plants develop an unusual, swollen, bottle-like base (the storage organ that allows them to withstand very dry conditions) with several long, thin stems. The stems are topped by the crowns of pendulous strap-like leaves which give the plant one of its common names the Ponytail Plant.
The plant is also referred to as the Elephant Foot Tree because of the swollen shape base, coupled with the greyish-brown colour and the wrinkled texture of the bark.

Sunlight: Full sun to part shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: medium

Temprature: 10°C (50°F)

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • Beaucarnea Recurvata is basically a “plant it and forget it” kind of plant, providing it has enough light to thrive and somewhat steady water throughout the growing season.
  • As with all palms, ponytail palms should never be top-trimmed.

  • Plants moved from indoors to permanent outside locations should be gradually exposed to the increase in light and temperature change.


Special Feature:
Perhaps best grown in native plant gardens, meadows and woodland gardens. Marginal ornamental attributes for perennial borders. Large lower leaves can form a nice ground cover if plants are massed.

  • Ayurveda

Ornamental use:
  • The plant is used for ornamental purpose


Note:
