1. Ponytail’s are native to the dry Mexican climate, this habitat allows it to survive interior winter heat very well in your Burlington, MA interior office workplace.
2. However, the ponytail plant does not like too frequent waterings.
3. Never allow water to sit in the bottom of the saucer or pot. An interesting fact is that Nolina recurvata stores its water in its base.
4. A sandy-mix soil generally minimize the probability of root rot, especially compared to the peaty mixes normally used in most tropicals.
Specifically, allow the soil to dry out well between waterings, and if you have any doubt on whether or not to water the plant, skip it until the next week.
5. Dry, brown foliage, a shriveled stem or desiccated roots are usually signs of underwatering in your dry interior offices.
6. If you are overwatering, we normally see light new growth, stem rot or root rot will appear.
7. Light requirements for ponytails are pretty easy to remember if you think of where it is native to – the Mexico desert landscape. PDI places these high light green indoor plants on south and west exposure office windows.
Provide bright indirect light to full sun.
Any window space indoors particularly one facing north will suit the light requirements of this high-light plant. For optimum performance, however, full sun is best.
