This plant is easy to grow and drought-tolerant. Its swollen base stores water, so occasional lack of water will do no harm.
If you're forgetful about watering, this may be the ideal house plant for you. In fact, the most common mistake with this plant is overwatering it, especially in winter. When in doubt, keep it on the dry side.
At the top of its trunk, long, narrow green leaves grow in a cluster, curving downward like a pony's tail. Keep them dust-free by spraying leaves with room-temperature water, then wiping them with a soft cloth. Cleaning the leaves will also help to prevent spider mites that prefer the same dry living conditions as the ponytail palm tree.

Clusters of small, white flowers may appear on plants when they are several years old. However, plants that are grown indoors rarely flower.
Because of its tolerance for living indoors, ponytail palm makes an easy-to-please house plant and a striking accent for any room.
A native of the Mexican desert, this house plant tolerates the dry air of heated homes extremely well.
