Planting Advice

It's best grown with some lime in potting mix or soil as this fern prefers alkaline soils.

Watering needs

Keep soil moist but not wet at all times. Good humidity levels will help keep your plant healthy, so mist regularly with a water sprayer.

Pruning Advice

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