Planting & Care
Ferns do not produce flowers, therefore they cannot produce seeds. They reproduce with spores that form on the underside of the fronds. Propagating ferns with spores is a fun and fairly easy method of growing new ferns, but it can take 3-4 years to grow a mature plant.
Sunlight: Part shade
Soil: well-drained soil
Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer
- As with temperature, consistent humidity is very important.
- Maidenhair Ferns prefer high humidity but do not like to be misted so placing them on a pebble tray filled with water is the best solution.
- Be sure the plant is sitting on the pebbles and not in the water.
- Dry air causes the leaflets on the fronds to shrivel.
Adiantum raddianum, commonly called Delta maidenhair fern, and its cultivars are perhaps the most commonly grown of the non-winter hardy maidenhair ferns. Triangular, 3- or 4-pinnate fronds with dark stalks emerge from a dense rootstock of short, branching rhizomes.
- Houseplant that may be considered for bathroom areas and bright areas with some diffused sun.
- Hanging baskets, pots or containers.
- The plant is used for ornamental purpose.
No serious insect or disease problems. Watch for scale and mealybugs. Leaves may scorch in direct sun. Fronds will die back quickly if soils are allowed to dry out.
