Natural climber

The Davana rarely grows on the ground in the wild tropics. Instead, it climbs up trees or the crook of branches.

Easy to care for

You'll be pleased to know the Davana is considered an easy fern to look after. Rotating often will keep the growth lovely and full. 

Pet friendly

This plant is non-toxic, so if you have pets or young children, they will be safe in their curiosity. However, it is still (like most houseplants) not recommended to eat!

Care tips

Light | In the wild, Davana is native to tropical treetops, thriving in dappled sunlight. At home, they are happiest in bright daylight; they don't need direct light but will happily enjoy up to half an hour of passing sunshine. 

Water | Like other ferns, Davana thrives on consistent moisture. Water when the soil's surface feels dry to the touch. Avoid watering directly onto the rhizomes as then it might get a bald centre. 

Humidity | Davana enjoys a good level of humidity. A natural way to achieve this is by grouping plants, using a pebble tray or misting occasionally. Would be very happy in humid spots like kitchens or bathrooms. 

Temperature | Ferns like temperatures between 16-24℃.
