The Beaucarnea - 190cm originates from South America and can grow up to 10 metres in the wild here.
The Beaucarnea is also called elephant's foot. It owes this nickname to its large trunk, which resembles the leg of an elephant. Apart from it's unique appearance, the thick stem is also very handy for the plant. The Beaucarnea stores the water in it and has its own water reservoir, as it were. This means that you do not have to water the plant very often and it can go a long time without.
