I love these plants and even though their called Foxtail Ferns or Myers Ferns, they actually aren’t true ferns,
These plants have very dense & fleshy roots which grow from fat tubers.
These balls, which develop where the fronds meet the underground rhizomes, are small, round growth nodules about the size of a grape. The nodules, also known as “bulbils,” usually appear near the end of the growing season, between late summer and autumn.
