Planting & Care
The individual types differ widely in the size of their feathery leaves. The leaves of Adiantum raddianum "Microphyllum" are minute. They give the plant a delicate appearance. However, even large-leafed species, such as Adiantum peruvianum whose feathery leaves can grow up to 5 cm (2 in) long, have a delicate appearance as the leaves are very thin.
Sunlight: Full Sun to Partial Shade
Soil: well-drained soil
Temprature: 15° C (59° F).
Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer
- Keep evenly moist and use soft water.
- Do not allow it to dry out or the fronds will wither very rapidly.
- If the plant has dried out for only a short time, immersing the root-stock in water is helpful.
- Also cut off any brown fronds.
- The plant should then begin to shoot again.
- Give a little less water in winter (except in very warm rooms).
Attractive ornamental fern for the shaded border, woodland garden, shaded rock garden or native plant garden. Combine with broad leaves of hostas, caladiums or brunneras. Also effective as an edger along paths in shade gardens.
- The plant is used for ornamental purpose.
No serious insect or disease problems. High summer heat may cause fronds to brown by mid to late summer, particularly if good soil moisture is not maintained and/or plants are grown in too much sun.
