With its bulbous trunk, cascading ponytail of leaves, and endearing proportions, the ponytail palm is a cute plant that happens to be pretty low maintenance. A slow-grower that can reportedly live for decades, or even centuries, it’s no wonder that the ponytail palm is a popular houseplant choice. If you’re convinced that you need one of your own, here’s how to keep one happy. Keep this plant in very bright but not in direct sunlight. These plants can be let to dry out between watering. Their bulbous trunk stores water for them. So if the base is looking dried out and wrinkled, bottom water the plant to rehydrate it.
