Fun & Carefree Houseplant that's Actually a Succulent!

Looking for a unique houseplant that is easy to care for? The Ponytail Palm Tree is a great choice!

Native to eastern Mexico, this tree is not actually related to a palm tree despite its common name. It is a member of the agave family and is considered a succulent. Many gardeners grow this as an outdoor bonsai tree for its sleek bulb-like trunk and long curly leaves. The leaves can get up to 3 feet long.

The Ponytail Palm plant is easily grown as an indoor houseplant, on porches or patios in a container, and can even be planted outdoors in the correct growing zones as a specimen plant.


In USDA growing zones 9-11, the Ponytail Palm can be grown outdoors at all times of the year. They can grow up to 30 feet tall when given enough space but rarely grow to this size as houseplants.

In all other climates, the Ponytail Palm tree is grown as an indoor plant or grown in containers in a sunny spot. When grown indoors, the houseplant can grow up to 2-3 feet tall and 1-3 feet wide. It is recommended to repot the ponytail palm when the plant gets outbound.

Ponytail Palm trees prefer well-draining soil and containers with drainage holes to prevent root rot. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings. Bright, indirect light is best for these easy-to-care-for plants.

I love it!!

I got the ponytail plant in opened the box and oh my. I have to say it was well-packaged, which is a big plus. I got it out of the box and it's so pretty, I couldn't stop playing with the leaves. The care for the plant, and the way it was packaged. is a big plus for me. I was worried about a plant being shipped, but not anymore. Thank you so much Perfect Plants!

Truly a perfect plant, It arrived in beautiful condition and has been transplanted into a larger container and I’m looking forward to fears of having this plant in my home.

So thrilled to hear how well everything went with your Ponytail Palm Tree delivery. Enjoy!


The box was partially crushed so I was a little worried but upon opening saw a perfect, gorgeous and healthy plant. I love it, though I do with it came with care instructions. These days you can google but the personal touch of including it would be nice.
