Maidenhair Fern


My contrasting dark wiry stems and delicate small round leaves give me an elegant and stand-out appearance; I can be a little bit fussy to look after but I promise I'm worth it.

How to look after me

  • Light


    Keep me in light shade and out of direct sunlight.

  • Water


    Water when top of soil is dry, make sure to allow to drain in between waterings.

  • Food


    Feed me once a month in spring and summer.

  • Climate


    Mist me regularly and keep the temperature at around 15-20°C.

  • Other Maintentance


    If my stems at the base look worse for wear, snip them off and they will regenerate soon enough.

Things to look out for

  • Look Out

    Brown and crispy fronds

    Most likely due to low humidity, mist more frequently and make sure not too close to a heat source.
  • Look Out

    Pale leaves

    Make sure your fern is getting the right light level, move to somewhere with light shade.
  • Look Out

    Yellow leaves

    Make sure you are not under/over-watering, make sure you allow top of soil to dry out in between waterings.
