Caring for Adiantum capillus

    When growing maidenhair fern indoors, the plant prefers small containers and dislikes repotting. Maidenhair is also intolerant of low humidity or dry air from heating or cooling vents when grown in the home. Therefore, you will either need to mist the plant daily or set it on a water-filled pebble tray.

Typical uses of Adiantum capillus

Special features: Ornamental fern for shaded areas of woodland or native plant gardens.
