I had 2 beautiful foxtale furns. I had to go away for a week and my husband forgot to put them indoors. They look half dead so I cut the dead branches. Is there anything else I can do to bring them back, or should I plan a funeral service for them?

I think you did the right thing by cutting back all the damaged foliage. You might be surprised at how well your plants will come back. The roots are probably all right and will produce new foliage. Continue to water as before and wait patiently for them to recover. Foxtail ferns are sturdier than they appear.

Best wishes with your plants!
