Like the Sago “Palm”, the Ponytail Palm is not a Palm. It is more of a lily than anything. It has other names like Bottle Palm and Elephants Foot. It likes dry heat, therefore it does well inside the house in winter. It requires little water, as it stores water in its bulbous trunk. Use a well-drained sandy soil when repotting it. It does not require humidity. This plant is a slow grower and will grow 15 foot tall outside but will stay shorter inside. This plant is considered to be one of the most tolerant plants and easy to grow inside. This is also a great plants where there are pets.
