Delicate

The common name, Maidenhair, refers to the slender, almost hair-like black stems.

Baby Ferns

The stems arch downwards in the hope of finding soil. This is so that the tips of the fronds can produce roots, eventually producing a new baby fern.

Rocks & Waterfalls

This plant grows out of the crevices of rock faces close to waterfalls or streams in the jungle.

Care Tips


Light
: This fern likes to sit in a bright spot with a wide view of the open sky. It can tolerate an hour or two of direct sunshine but keep an eye on its moisture levels.

Water: Along with light, the most crucial element in caring for a trailing maidenhair fern is ensuring its soil is kept consistently and evenly moist. A great way to quickly check is to lift the pot; the moment it feels a bit lighter than 'fully moistened', it's time to water again. 

If you let the Maidenhair dry out, the fronds will turn brown and crispy and die back. If this happens, don't panic! Cut off all the spent fronds, give the soil a good soak and put the plant in bright light to encourage new growth. If successful in a couple of months, you'll have a bushy plant again. 

Humidity: It thrives in highly humid environments, so place on a pebble tray or group with other plants for best results.

Temperature: Enjoys warmer temperatures; this plant will do best in environments of between 15-25°C.
