Though delicate-looking, foxtail fern is quite hardy. It’s a laidback plant with easy care requirements. All this fern needs is bright, indirect light and well-draining soil. Pair this with a healthy amount of room to grow and the occasional trimming of spent stems, and you will have a beautifully bushy plant. The foxtail fern has tuberous roots, making it drought-tolerant. (It is quite forgiving if you forget to water it.) Because of its strong root system, however, it can choke out smaller, more fragile plants in your garden.
