Native to the dry regions of Texas, Beaucarnea Recurvata is an evergreen perennial plant that can store water for dry season. Since it can store water it does not require too much of attention and is a low maintenance plant. It is also referred to as the Elephant Foot tree because of the swollen shaped base. It is a slow growing plant and therefore it is used for indoor decoration. The plant requires bright light at all times and therefore even if there is no direct sunlight it can grow without any problems.
