Goringfolly's Garden

Pony Tail Palm.

Genus: Beaucarnea.

Species: Beaucarnea recurvata.

This has been growing here in the conservatory since 1985. The base continues to get bigger as the stem slowly gets taller. I always call it 'Nolina Recurvata' It requires very little looking after. No need to water it in the winter as it stores water in it's base. I am growing others to experiment with. If you cut the stem it should grow several more.
