Ponytail Palm Care

Temperature: Temperatures averaging 70°F/21°C - 80°F/26°C are very good and not much below 50°F/10°C.
Light: This plant thrives on bright light conditions, but not direct sunlight. Heat is fine because they react similar to a cacti in hot conditions. Bright rather than light (direct), is the key.
Watering: These are succulents which are mainly made up of water and retain a lot of water in it's trunk (for storage), similar to a cactus. The soil needs to be moist which is easy to check by placing a finger an inch deep into the soil to make sure it is not dry. It needs much less in the winter. .
Soil: A pot mixture used for cactus will suffice or a soil mix that drains well and is well aerated.
Re-Potting: Re-pot when the plant has outgrown it's pot. It's best to re-pot the offsets (small aloes - pups) in separate pots once they have grown enough.
Air Humidity: Humidity is not a major concern for these, making the average room indoors sufficient.
Propagation: Offsets can be divided carefully and then re-potted. Pups will grow from the parent plant which are best removed when they are about 2 inches long, or when the main plant needs more room to grow. 
Where they grow best: As mentioned above these love bright conditions, making them a plant that will grow well on a shelf, windowsill or other area, without direct sunlight.
