I would like to know what is the name of this plant with long thin strap-shaped leaves which grow in clusters from a swollen stem that looks like a large woody bulb. The "bulb" is halfway out of the soil in the pot.
This plant is Beaucarnea recurvata, the ponytail palm. Despite the name it is not related to the palms. These are great indoor plants if you have good or high light conditions. I have never had a lot of problems with them. Things to note include:
It is Nolyna Palm. It is also called lota Palm in hindi.it is a much loved indoor potted plant. In the open ground it can achieve a height of 9-10 feet.
