Ponytail Palm Compacta


Beaucarnea recurvata  'Compact Ponytail Palm'

The Ponytail Palm (Beaucarnea recurvata) is an evergreen perennial native to eastern Mexico and has been found to grow up to 15 feet tall and 350 years old!

Despite its common name, the Ponytail Palm is not a true palm, and requires care similiar to that of other desert-dwelling plants like cacti or succulents. Place your Ponytail Palm where it will receive ample amount of high light — ideally in front of a southern or western-facing window as this plant requires at least a few hours of direct sun every day. If placed in medium light there is a higher risk of root rot and leggy growth. This plant will not tolerate low light conditions.

Care instruction

  • Light : High Light. Prefers direct sunlight from a Southern or Western facing window.  It can tolerate bright indirect light, although growth may become leggy. 
  • Water : Be sure to water your plant upon delivery. Ponytail palms like dry soil and will rot when too much moisture is present.
  • Plant Tip : Low humidity. Be careful applying too much moisture as the stalks can rot.
