Ponytail Palm...

I had my back to the door when someone came in the showroom with orchids he's selling from his truck in the parking lot. I ignored him and my associate got into a conversation and went out to see what he had to offer. While she was checking all the goods in the truck, the woman from the neighboring business also went out to check the merchandise.
My associate made several trips back and forth as she purchased a few things. One of them was a Ponytail Palm.
I've seen large plants but the one she bought was small, less than a foot tall, it had a thickened trunk and (to me) appeared dwarfed almost bonsai.
Okay, I was curious and went to the truck to see what else he was selling. His truck had signage as a landscaping company who does plant maintenance and leasing for corporate environments. Mostly orchids... I declined having killed a few I received as gifts.
He said everything on the truck is $20 each so I looked around and steered to the Ponytail Palms.
Most were all green and 2 had some red coloration in the center. I chose one with a flared base similar to the photo below.
That brought smiles as I brought it home. I'm told it's good Feng Shui.

You forgot to use a rubber band to gather all the leaves to the back to make the ponytail. grin
It's lockdown hair etiquette.
