In their native habitat, these ferns are often epiphytic, which explains their creeping rhizomes. In indoor cultivation, they are frequently grown as hanging plants or long-term potted plants.

Common name: Squirrel s foot ferns, among others. The idea is that the fuzzy, ground-level rhizomes resemble animal feet.
Bloom time: no
Height: 6-12 in. (15-30 cm) to 12-18 in. (30-45 cm)
Difficulty level: medium

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.

Care:
  • 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.

Use
Ornamental use:
  • They are grown as Container, Groundcover, Hanging Basket, Houseplant.
