The Q&A Archives: How do I care for a new plant that I purchased?

Question: I purchased a ponytail guatemalansis mul and the tag gave very little information about this plant.

Can you please give me more information on this plant?

Where to keep it indoors?
How much light is needed?
How often do I water it?
How tall it will grow?
Will it shed easily?

Answer: Carmen,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

Provide your ponytail with full sun or as close to it as you can. Water moderately, too much is not good. Feed it monthly with a soluble plant food like Miracle Gro at the lower label rate. It grows slowly reaching 2-5 feet in time. It does not shed.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
