Planting & Care
Along with clumping ferns, the Davallia are relatively easy to propagate. You can propagate from spores, but it s just as easy to divide the underground rhizome and split your fern in two, potting up each half into a new container. It s best to perform this operation on older plants so you can get the most viable rhizome possible.
Sunlight: Light Shade, Partial to Full Shade
Soil: 6.1 to 6.5 (mildly acidic)
Water: These ferns love humidity and will require both frequent watering and frequent misting. It s important not to let the rhizomes dry out, which will weaken and possibly kill the plants.
Temprature: Davallia trichomanoides will survive temperatures down to -5c although plants are much happier when kept frost free.
Fertilizer: Feed with a weak liquid fertilizer throughout the growing season.
- These do not need frequent repotting and in fact should be encouraged to overgrow their pots a little bit.
- This is especially true for hanging plants, which look better when they cascade slightly and their unique rhizomes are visible protruding from the container.
- For best growth, repot every other year.
- Be aware that these plants are very sensitive to accumulated fertilizer salts, in part because of their rhizomes.
- Make sure to flush the soil very well at least once a year and even soak the root ball to clean out fertilizer.
- They are grown as Container, Groundcover, Hanging Basket, Houseplant.
