A decorative easy to grow fern with arching, feathery bright green fronds that deepen in colour with age. Small plantlets form directly on top of mature fronds which fall off and grow into new fern plants. Ideal for hanging baskets, containers, ferneries or a cool, shady spot in the garden. Grows best in a humus-rich soil in a shady to partly shaded position. Choose a warm spot indoors with filtered light.

  • Pot up plantlets that form to produce new plants.

Watering needs

Keep soil moist but not wet at all times, especially during the growing season. Overwatering can damage your plant and lead to fronds quickly turning brown.

Pruning Advice

Remove spent fronds with clean, sharp secateurs to keep the plant tidy and prevent dead leaves from draining energy from the plant.
