Potted Ponytail Palms

Let's pot a Ponytail Palm

Have you ever heard of these wonderful plants?  Even though it's called a ponytail palm it's not really a palm at all but a member of the lily family.  It has an unusual nickname "Elephant Foot Tree" because of it's bulbous base and thin trunk.

These potted plants are native to the desert so they like direct sunlight.  Place them in large garden containers and make sure they are getting as much direct sunlight as possible.  You don't need deep garden planters since the root systems are very shallow but sometimes a deeper pot looks more uniform and pleasing.

Since the palm is a deep forest green color you can use any type of container from terracotta to colorful glazed pottery.  A bright and cheerful planter will compliment this palm beautifully.

These potted ponytail palms are drought tolerant and don't like much water.  Never allow water to sit in the bottom of the flowerpot or saucer.  The palm stores water in its big base and doesn't need much water before it may start to rot.  Use a good potting mix with lots of sand in the mix in the garden container.

Under-watering this potted palm will show up as brown foliage.  Over-watering will show stem or root rot.  If you watch the watering and make sure you have a nice sized planter, your potted ponytail palm will add beauty and interest to your home and garden collection of planters.
