An elegant houseplant, the bright green feathery leaves have an almost wispy quality. These plants work equally well in a pot or in a hanging basket. The plant is initially bushy, but the stems become slenderer as the plant matures and form vines. This plant is native to South and East Africa.
Neediness: ferns do benefit from an occasional trim to keep it fresh and tidy but beware of the tiny, hidden thorns. Maintaining humidity is key to help this plant thrive.
Watering: ferns enjoy being well watered so avoid allowing the soil to dry out by watering little and often and mist regularly to recreate the effects of a humid environment. Water less frequently in cooler weather. Pale green fronds can be an indicator that the plant is thirsty. Brown stems can be a sign the plant is overwatered.
Ideal location: bathrooms, kitchens and living rooms
Rate of growth: average, in the right conditions these plants can grow up to 2.5m tall and 0.5m wide.
Temperature: keep at normal room temperature. Avoid temperatures above 25c in warm weather and below 10c in cooler weather.
Pets: this plant is toxic to cats and dogs. See our range of pet friendly plants if your pet is prone to nibbling..
