Plant Diameter: Size Varies
Light: Bright, indirect sunlight. Ponytail Palms prefer to have as much as light as possible. Place them in a bright location but make sure their fronds don’t get too much sunshine every day. If you see them start to brown, move the plant back from the window.
Water: 1x week. Keep the soil fairly dry. Water from spring through fall, allowing the top inch or two of the soil to dry out completely before re-watering. During the winter, only water every 10 days.
To water, soak the soil and allow the excess water to drain through the bottom of the pot into a dish. Allow the pot to sit in the dish for several minutes to soak up as much water as possible. Then, dump out any remaining water in the sink.
Fertilizer: Fertilize in the spring with a cactus or succulent fertilizer and bring into a brighter room for the summer months.
Maintenance: During the winter, do not let the plant sit too close to the cold windows at night. It can be severely damaged by freezing temperatures.
