Yes is safe for cats. Will eventually need to be transplanted if you want it to grow bigger.
I purchased one 7 years ago and mine is 6 feet tall and gorgeous!
It arrives about 12-18 inches tall. It can get about 24 in tall.
Yes, my Ponytail Palm included a back plastic pebble tray.
Yes. I planted mine in my backyard and it originally was having a hard time adjusting to the direct sun but its thriving now.
To care for the plant - Keep soil fairly dry. Water from spring through fall allowing soil to dry on the surface before re-watering. During the winter only water occasionally. Fertilize in the spring and bring into brighter room for the summer months. Re-potting every other year at the most is all the Ponytail Palm needs.
it needs water. I water my twas a week. Cut the ends off. I use 10oz at a time. But i trans planted it in a 10 inch round pot.
It says in one of the previous answers above to only go up one inch in width. Going bigger could be too much soil which will retain more water than the plant needs.
