This easy care branched version of Beaucarnea recurvata has a distinctive exotic look. Branches develop from the swollen base and trunk which stores water and looks a little like an elephant's foot, being greyish brown with a wrinkled texture. Long slender leaves curve from the top of the stem like ponytails giving rise to its other common name Pony Tail Palm.
