Planting & Care
The hare s foot fern is a good addition to your collection if you like fast-growing, showy ferns and are able to provide ample humidity and light. Larger specimens can have fronds that reach several feet, but this is rare outside of its natural habitat. In most cases, your plant will have fronds that are about a foot in length and densely cluster around the soil surface.
The key to success with these ferns--aside from providing enough light--is to get the watering regimen right. Think of these plants as epiphytes and it will help: they like copious amounts of water and humidity, providing it drains away immediately and they are never allowed to be waterlogged.
