Foxtail fern is a collection of bright green plumes which shoot straight up from the soil. The erect stems can grow to a height of 2 or 3 feet and, taken as individuals, they resemble miniature cypress trees. It is also called cat’s tail fern. Foxtail fern produces marble-sized seeds which sprout easily.
Light: Foxtail fern needs good bright light. It does best in partial shade.
Moisture: Foxtail fern does best with regular watering, but allow the soil to dry out between waterings.
Hardiness: Foxtail fern is killed to the ground by light freezes, but recovers quickly.
