The Beaucarnea recurvata is a member of the Rustaceae family, native to Mexico.  Easy to care for, it is the perfect plant for beginners!

The Beaucarnea recurvata’s trunk is stocky, thus its nickname Elephant’s Foot. Unlike most indoor plants, its growth is quite slow. Its dense and light foliage makes it a must for any luminous setting!

MAINTENANCE

The Beaucarnea recurvata appreciates good ambient light, but dislikes direct sun, which can scorch its foliage. Ideally, place it in an Eastern facing window. Give your Beaucarnea recurvata a drink when its soil dries up completely from top to bottom. Here is a little tip to determine if it is the case: delicately insert a thin wooden stick all the way down to the bottom of the pot. If the stick is wet or damp as you pull it out, your Beaucarnea recurvata does not need a drink just yet! The watering frequency may vary depending on the season and humidity level of the room. It will appreciate being misted, especially during winter months.

When you take possession of your plant, make sure you assess its watering needs. Before you give it a drink the first time, check the soil’s moisture level to verify whether or not it is moist near the surface. It is best to aerate the soil before the initial watering since it is often compacted to avoid shifting during transit. This also allows it to breathe and release moisture.

Rotate your plant periodically in order to encourage an even growth. Cleaning the leaves regularly will stimulate proper photosynthesis. As you wipe the foliage, inspect the leaves on either side to make sure there are no pests.
