Ponytail Palm Beaucarnea recurvata Houseplant Seeds
15 Ponytail Palm seeds. The Ponytail Palm, also known as Beaucarnea Recurvata, or Elephant's Foot is a distinctive looking houseplant with a swollen thick brown stem at its base that stores water. The long narrow curly, dark green leaves flow up from this base much like a plume of water in a fountain.

Keep the container lightly moist by misting and place in an area with a temperature of at least 68 degrees Fahrenheit (20 C.). Heat under the container can speed germination. Cover the container with plastic until germination. Remove the plastic once per day to allow excess moisture to escape. Keep the container in a brightly lit area but with some shelter from noonday sun, which may burn new leaves. You can expect sprouts in 1 to 3 months depending upon the time of year and amount of light and heat the plant experiences. Remove the heating mat and plastic once you see sprouts. Continue to mist your little ponytail palms and keep them in a bright, warm area. Once the seedlings have several pairs of true leaves, water deeply but infrequently in summer and reduce to half in winter. Use a good liquid plant food diluted in spring and again in summer.
