Beaucarnea guatemalensis ‘Ponytail Palm’
This ‘Ponytail Palm’ species is native to seasonally dry forests in Guatemala and Nicaragua . Despite its common name, it is not closely related to the true palms.
Provide really bright light to full sun. Allow soil to dry out entirely between waterings. In winter, only water if the base starts shrinking a bit (for smaller plants you would water thru winter).
Non-toxic to pets, every plant is unique; the one you get may vary from the one in the photo.
