    Beaucarnea recurvata, Ponytail Palm's best quality is how easy it is to grow: As long as you don't overwater it, the plant may seem virtually indestructible. It's a slow grower that's perfect for just about any room of the home, especially bedrooms. A small ponytail palm looks fabulous on tabletops. It has a spare appearance that makes it fantastic for contemporary and modern interior designs, but ponytail palm also looks great in more casual settings, such as country and eclectic looks. Basically, you can grow this houseplant anywhere.

    Over time, this slow-growing tree can put on some size and grow a couple of feet tall indoors. Because this houseplant is so slow growing, though, don't expect it to happen any time soon! Small specimens of ponytail palm are a wonderful choice for side tables, end tables, or coffee tables.


    Grow ponytail palm in bright light for best growth, but it tolerates medium- and low-light spots, as well. Because it stores water in its thick trunk, ponytail palm can survive extended periods with no water -- making it the perfect houseplant if you tend to travel a lot or are a forgetful waterer. That said, this houseplant tree will grow best if watered regularly -- when the top inch or so of the potting mix starts to dry.

    Fertilize ponytail palm a couple of times a year in spring and summer. You can use any fertilizer labeled for use on houseplants; just be sure to follow the directions on the product packaging. If you wish to fertilize your plant more frequently, you can -- it will respond by growing faster.

    If leaf tips turn brown, simply clip off the brown parts with a sharp scissors to keep the plant from looking unsightly.
