Questions & Answers

How many stems are included in the 4 inch pot?

Asked by: Curt
There is really no standard number of stems in a pot. A 4 inch pot is basically providing you a start of this plant. In the case of this plant, there are 2 main plants per pot with new stems emerging that will continue to multiply. Putting cuttings of this plant is certainly one means of propagating this plant. Another way is by plant division. This is a very versatile plant that serves as an aquatic plant in ponds as well as a landscape plant in many different applications. This particular plant is raised/grown in aquatic conditions, with its feet wet, but is easily adapted to other conditions.

Is there any other way to get this plant in California or are there any similar plants available for zone 9?

Asked by: Julie
Hi Julie! I have seen this plant used in some of the DIY shows as a landscape plant in California. It should be available as a potted nursery plant at some of your local garden centers. Horsetail is a pretty unique plant and is often compared to bamboo.
