Hello

It looks like a Beaucarnea recurvata. Very drought tolerant caudiciform tree.

Thank you for the quick response. Will they really grow that tall?

I've had mine for about 40 years and its about 4 feet tall. But in the ground in Hawaii, they get huge.

Your Ponytail Palm is in beautiful condition. Very lovely mane of foliage @Diekman. In the picture you shared, is that the spot your Pony tail grows? If so, I am amazed. It maybe the pic. It looks like a little less light than I would have thought a Pony tail would thrive in. But don't move it, It's a beautiful plant and I would keep it the way you have it, I love Ponys!

Some time when you're in the mood @Diekman ; you might fill out your location information. Just click on the round headed blue icon the top right of this page. You will get more people run in to help. You do not have to give your name at all, as far as your location, just having a county and state will be really helpful for people to see when have a question. Welcome, this forum is great.

Thank you. Actually it grows outdoors. We live in Texas near Dallas. We had just brought it in the house last night because we expected our first freeze. We are looking into lights ect to get us through the winter. I will complete our location. Thank you for the advice!
