    📚 Ponytail Palm Care Guide

    The Ponytail Palm is drought tolerant, slow-growing, and requires very little care. This plant is ideal for people with very little time or who travel regularly.
    Ponytail Palm details
    💧️ Water - Low Water
    Low Water Needs

    Ponytail Palm is fairly forgiving when it comes to missing a watering day. These plants don't require much oversight.

    For Ponytail Palm, it is important to let the majority of the soil dry in between waterings. Be careful about overwatering your plant -- this can lead to fungal disease like root rot and pest infestations.

    Growing Outdoors
    If growing outdoors, you will want to plant Ponytail Palm in an area that receives morning sunlight that's not too harsh and afternoon shade for most natural light. You can consider East facing portions of your garden as those get more morning sun.

    Growing Indoors
    If growing indoors, you can place Ponytail Palm near an East-facing window that will receive morning sun for half of the day and afternoon shade.
    You can also consider placing your Ponytail Palm a few feet away from a South-facing window for diffused light. However, be careful about placing in direct sunlight of a South-facing window as that can cause leaf scorch and affect growth. You can always diffuse the harsh light of a South-facing window by using a sheer curtain.

    ☀️ Light - Direct Sun
    Direct Sunlight (Full Sun)
    Ponytail Palm thrives best in direct sunlight or full sun meaning that it loves at least 6-8 hours of bright direct light.

    If growing outdoors, you will want to plant Ponytail Palm in an area that receives sunlight throughout the day. If growing indoors, place near a South-facing window for ideal conditions. South-facing windows receive the most amount of direct light everyday.

    🌎 Hardiness Zone
    Hardiness zones (or Grow Zones) are areas where Ponytail Palm is able to grow outdoors year round.
    If you are located outside of the specified grow zones, you will need to bring your plant indoors during cooler months if you are growing outside. We recommend growing in a container or indoors.
