I'm Foxtail Fern
Difficulty: easy, low maintenance
Light Needed: moderate, bright light
Water: not much, water deeply when the soil is dry
Despite its name, the Foxtail Fern isn't actually a fern. The fronds of this plant are long and luscious, resembling that of a fox. The evergreen leaves are a cylindrical shape that rise from the ground up. The plant is very low maintenance as as they are very tough and the extensive root system is great for storing up water for times of drought. Keep it out of the cold and in a very well-lit location and you'll make it very happy
