Beaucarnea Recurvata, aka Ponytail Palm or the elephant's foot, is a species of plant in the family Asparagaceae, native to eastern Mexico. Despite its common name, Ponytail Palms aren’t actually palms at all, and are more closely related to lilies, but need the kind of care you’d give a cactus or succulent. With its bulbous trunk, cascading ponytail of leaves, and endearing proportions, 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.
