Jeff just brought this plant home for me i had one before and i can't remember the name of it or how to care for it hence the death of the first one. If the picture doesn't show up it's in my photobucket "named" unknown.

Hey Phoenix,

If you copy/paste that link into your browser, the pic will come up in paint...it did for me. Sorry I can't help ID it, but wanted to pass along that info for someone else who might be able to help. I want to call it a spider plant...we had something like it when I was a kid, but yaknow, I'm a newbie and all so I'm probably not right on that wink

As an aside, I was looking at your album, and noticed you're a bit of a frog 'fan'. I just got this fountain today, and thought you'd enjoy it. I absolutely love it (had to set it up in the yard right away and play LOL!) Here's the catalogue pic:

The growth habit does look like a 'ponytail palm' Beaucarnea recurvata or Nolina recurvata. You will be able to tell for sure if you see this kind of "pear shaped" trunk inside your pot.
