Ponytail Palm (Indoor) Delivery Time Delayed

$13.00 (Fixed Shipping Cost)

Ponytail Palm - Indoor Bonsai Tree


As you are aware, most companies are experiencing logistics delays with overseas shipments. We are waiting on a shipment of ceramic pots and this is impacting the ability to “produce” trees for you.

Trees impacted are clearly marked. You can order the bonsai, but it could be 4-6 weeks before we are able to safely ship them. It only impacts the trees labeled as such.


The Ponytail Palm is a native of Southeastern Mexico and despite its name, isn’t actually a Palm at all (it’s actually a Lily, we just haven’t had the heart to tell it).

Perhaps the most striking feature of this lovely tree is its swollen, bulbous base. The trunk has a unique texture and scaly feel that’s earned it the nickname Elephant’s Foot, and that base serves as a reserve for water making the Ponytail Palm highly tolerant to drought and low water conditions.

Clusters of long strap-like leaves arch and droop gracefully from the trunk giving the impression of a tropical palm, and despite its elegant appearance this slow-growing, low-maintenance Bonsai couldn’t be easier to care for.

The Ponytail is an excellent Bonsai for any home or office and with a little light and water you’ll be enjoying this tree for many, many years to come.

  • Will I Kill It?

    Maybe, but probably not. Kids and pets are much harder to keep alive, so if you’ve ever had one of them you’ll be fine. Most Bonsai we sell need little more than sun & water.

  • Are there specific Care Guides available for each species?

    Yes there are, and you can find them HERE

  • When will my Bonsai ship?

    We ship daily. However, trees to the west coast ship on Mondays or Tuesday to avoid being held in-transit over the weekend. Shipments of Trees are released on Mondays and Tuesdays only to avoid being held in-transit over weekends.

  • Can I track my Bonsai?

    Yes, once your Bonsai ships you’ll get an email with a FedEx tracking number that you’ll be able to use on their website to see exactly when your tree will arrive.

  • Do I need anything else to start an adventure in Bonsai?

    Your Bonsai will arrive potted in a ceramic Bonsai pot that will compliment your tree and right off the bat that’s all you’ll need. If you’re looking for the basics beyond that, a Starter Kit and Humidity Tray are an excellent place to start.
