Bright to very bright light
Water sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between watering. Reduce watering during the winter months.
Prefers 50°-85°F
Fertilize monthly spring and summer with a balanced liquid fertilizer at the recommended rate. Enjoys a crowded root ball, so it can stay in the same pot for years. In our experience, the ponytail palm does great outdoors in partial sun where protected from frost. Pull off lower leaves as they turn brown.
