An evergreen (if kept above 10c), usually rhizomatous fern that is easy to grow in the home. It is particularly suited to a hanging basket or pot in a brightly lit bathroom due to the often humid atmosphere. It has lance shaped, pinnate fronds on wiry stems initially emerging erect and eventually arching with age. Mature plants can reach up to 1mtr in height but 50cm is more normal with a similar spread.
Plant in a humus rich, moist but well drained compost that is acid to neutral in PH. A mix of peat/ coir, sharp sand and fine bark chippings will be ideal. Mist regularly as they like humidity but with good ventilation to stop moulds. Keep moist during the growing season feeding once a month with a standard liquid fertilizer. From early autumn until late spring stop feeding and reduce watering right down keeping the compost on the drier side to stop rot setting into the roots and crown.
We have had varying degrees of success growing these outdoors in the UK and they have proven to be able to survive mild winters outside in UK zone 9 gardens. Cold winters, with prolonged periods of below zero will kill them outright.
Sent as a young plant in a 9cm pot.
