Beaucarnea recurvata stores water in it's swollen base and stem. When grown as a single stemmed form it certainly deserves it's other common name of Elephant's Foot. A very forgiving and versatile plant. The added stem height makes it ideal as a floor standing specimen to add a touch of the exotic.
