Description for Elephant foot

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.

Planting and care

Because of the weight of the trunk and leaves, it is best to use a soil-based potting mixture and a heavy pot.
Indoors, these novel little palms are often grown in shallow pots.

Caring for Elephant foot

    These plants seldom need repotting and seem to respond quite well to being pot-bound. Move them on to a larger pot size in spring only if they appear to have completely outgrown their current container. Otherwise, it should be sufficient simply to provide some top-dressing with fresh potting mixture.

Typical uses of Elephant foot

Special features: 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.

Ornamental use: The plant is used for ornamental purpose

Medicinal use: Anti-tumor, Traditional medicine, Fever Asthma, to make tonics.
