Description for Nephrolepis exaltata aurea, Golden Fern, Pivla Fern

It is considered as being a serious invasive plant, forming dense monocultures.
Nephrolepis exaltata has 50 to 250cm (20 to 98 inch) long and 6 to 15cm (2 to 6 inch) broad in tufted clusters arising from underground rhizomes. The individual pinnae (leflets) are as much as 2 to 8cm (1 to 3 inch) long and shallowly toothed, but not further divided. The pinnate vein pattern is also visible on these highly compound leaves.

The round sori (clusters of spore-bearing organs) are in two rows near the margins on the underside of the pinnae.
The fronds grow upright at first, then arch gracefully downwards. They grow in lovely arching rosette shaped and spread by runners.

Planting and care

They make good houseplants, but require bright, filtered light and humid air.

Propagate from runners between late winter and early spring. Of the common cultivated ferns, the Boston fern is the most tolerant to drought. The fern thrives best in humid conditions, so when grown as a house plant it becomes necessary to mist the plant when relative humidity falls below around 80%.

SunlightSoilWaterTemperatureFertilizer
Sun to Partial Shade, Light ShadeDoes best with well-draining soils that are kept moist and humus-rich. pH range 5.6 to 6.0 (acidic), 6.1 to 6.5 (mildly acidic), 6.6 to 7.5 (neutral)In summer Nephrolepis exaltata will need lots of water and frequent misting. As long as room temperatures remains above 13C (55F), water the plant plentifully as often as necessary to keep the potting mixture thoroughly moist. Do not allow the potting mixture to dry out. In winter this fern will need less water. If the temperature drops below 13C (55F) for more than a day or two, allow the top third of the potting mixture to dry out completely between waterings.Normal room temperatures are suitable throughout the year. Minimum tolerable temperature is 10C (50F). For Nephrolepis exaltata grown at temperatures above 21C (70F) increase humidity by standing the pot on a tray of damp pebbles and mist-spraying the foliage daily. Nephrolepis exaltata may appear totally dead due to frost, it will re-emerge in the spring.Implement a half-strength, balanced liquid fertilizer on a monthly basis during growth.
