Found in the wild growing on rocks around waterfalls, the Maidenhair Fern needs lots of humidity so are a great option for steamy bathrooms. Whilst Maidenhair Ferns can be a little demanding with the right growing conditions they make a great addition to your plant collection for those looking to step up their plant game.
Height is measured from the bottom of the plastic nursery pot (please allow a +/-10% variance). Diameter is the nursery pot diameter, so to get a pot that fits, the pot diameter should be bigger.

I thrive in a bright indirect light, but out of direct afternoon sunshine. I need constant humidity and never let my soil dry out.
Water me little and often to keep my soil moist, and avoid letting me dry out.
Fertilise me once a month in spring and summer.
I love humidity so keep me in a steamy bathroom, on a tray of pebbles or next to a humidifier.
Maidenhair ferns are native to tropical South America, and commonly found in Brazil. The botanical name Adiantum derives from Greek and means ‘unwetted’, as when it rains water falls off the leaves, so that the plant appears waterproof!
In the wild Maidenhair ferns are found on forest floors, rocky crevices, and along rivers and streams. Maidenhair fern stems are actually underground in the form of rhizomes. Even when plants appear dead above ground they can regrow up to 18 months since the last above ground growth, so don't give up yet!
