About Maidenhair Fern


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!


Maidenhair ferns need a lot of humidity, soil moisture and good bright light to thrive. If they are unhappy fronds will quickly start dying. To rescue trim of any dying fronds and ensure soil is moist. Maidenhair ferns also do best in bright indirect light and warm conditions.
