Wow! Such a beautiful, elegant plant! We absolutely love the full shape and wonderful foliage on this houseplant! Nolina Recurvata is also known as ‘elephant’s foot’ or the ‘ponytail palm’, it is a strong houseplant requiring very little care. It is not a true palm, the term ‘elephant’s foot’ comes from the large caudex at its base that stores water, which makes it look like the foot of an elephant.
It’s a classic 70s houseplant making a huge comeback - for good reason, its stunning easy-care nature makes it hard not to love!
