🔆 Light
Prefers bright indirect light to full sun, and it can also adapt to medium light. Give your plant a turn every few days to expose all sides to light for even growth from all sides.


💧 Water
Water when the soil is completely dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.

To give your plant the absolute best, room-temperature rainwater and bottled spring water are your best options. Any water containing sugar or salt will hurt your plant!


☁️ Humidity
As with most succulents, your Ponytail Palm will thrive in dry conditions. The drier the air, the better!


🌡️ Temperature
Protect your palm from cold drafts from windows, air conditioning vents, or doors. This plant prefers normal room temperatures between (15-27°C).


🧴️ Food
For best results, use a general houseplant fertilizer only once in the spring and once in the summer. Any more than that and your Ponytail Palm may develop brown tips on the leaves.


🐾 Toxicity
Completely non-toxic to humans and pets.


➕ Additional Tips
Ponytail Palm leaves are sensitive to injury and tend to get dark at the ends. Cutting back the tips of the leaves is a good way to preserve the appearance of the plant. The key is to use a sharp scissors to cut off just the discolored parts.


⛔ HIGH RISK
● Do Not Overwater! This will cause leaf drop and root rot that eventually could kill the plant. The worst thing you can do regarding watering is "give it too much".
● Make sure your plant is not placed near Heat or AC source. It is best to keep consistent room temperature throughout the seasons and not turn off Heat or AC when away or traveling. The best temperature ratio for almost any plant is (15°C-24°C).
