This interesting, slow growing evergreen plant is neither a fern nor a palm although it looks like a combof the two. It’s often referred to as a “coontie fern” or “coontie palm.” It is a member of the cycad family(produce cones). Grows up to 3’ tall and is great for that drafty spot of your home being that it is cold-tolerant (down to –1° C in containers), although it is best to give it a more tropical environment to thrive in.
If replanting, use a sandy, well draining mix.
