Need help with plant ID

I picked this up at an auction. The only discription was "horse hair". Someone said it looked like green foxtail, but I'm not sure.

Cool, thanks. I looked at a few more sites with pics and I think youre right. How do you plant this in the substrate? It has no roots. Should I place some rocks on it till it does?

You should be able to tell which end is the bottom (the leaves/fronds should be angled up slightly). Just plant the base in the substrate. It'll root down eventually.
