Adiantum hispidulum, commonly known as Rough Maidenhair Fern or five-fingered jack, is a small fern in the family Pteridaceae of widespread distribution. It is found in Africa, Australia, Polynesia, Malesia, New Zealand and other Pacific Islands.

Common name: rough maidenhair fern
Color: green
Bloom time: Non-flowering
Height: 1.00 to 1.50 feet
Difficulty level: easy to grow

Planting & Care
Also, select a site that gets full sun. For dependable blooms, plants need six to eight hours of direct sunlight a day. If it’s too shady, the stems will attempt to lean towards the sun or get spindly and fall over. Most of the popular varieties prefer acidic to neutral soil, but some are lime-tolerant or prefer alkaline soils.

Sunlight: Part shade to full shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: 60 degrees F

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • Plants love water—but don’t drown them.
  • That is, they don’t like to sit in water, and they’ll die if the soil is too wet in winter.
  • The ideal soil is rich and loose, with good drainage.
  • One of the worst mistakes you can make is to not provide adequate drainage.
  • Use mulch.


Special Feature:
This is a popular ornamental fern which may be grown outdoors in USDA Zones 8-10 (perhaps Zone 7 if mulched and sheltered in winter) in shaded areas of woodland gardens and/or in containers/hanging baskets in shaded patio areas.
Use
Ornamental use:
  • The plant is used for ornamental purpose.


Note:
No serious insect or disease problems. Leaves may scorch in direct sun. Rhizome rot may occur in wet soils. At the other extreme, fronds will die back quickly if soils are allowed to dry out. Watch for aphids, mealybugs and scale.
