The Elephant Foot is a very easy plant that will be able to thrive and spread life in any home. In the tuber, it stores water for dry periods, making it tolerant to drying out. The detailed pattern on the body with small joints makes it resemble an Elephant's Foot. The plant is native to eastern Mexico.
Botanical name: Beaucarnea recurvata
Watering: Water once or twice a month, when the soil is dry.
Location: The Elephant Foot plant will love a bright location, but it will also survive being put in light shade. However, be aware that it will also need watering more often if placed in direct sunlight.
Temperature: The plant thrives at temperatures between 8-30 °C.
A little haircut: When the plant grows new leaves, the oldest leaves will wither. Therefore, we recommend that you regularly peel off the old withered leaves so that the plant looks beautiful and fresh.
Fertilizer: If you want to boost the growth of your elephant foot, you can add a bit of fertilizer to the soil during the summer period. Read the dosage instructions on the product you want to use - and make sure not to give too much.
