Description

He comes from tropical parts of Asia and is often found growing as an epiphyte on a palm tree and growing in soil. He is used to a hot, humid spot with nice bright light and does well in the bathrooms, kitchens, and terrariums. This little guy is a popular choice and known for his air-purifying abilities.... rumour has it the rippled fronds allow this plant to filter carbon dioxide into oxygen. Ferns are easy to care for once you get the hang of it; read our blog Fern Care 101 if you need extra tips.

Our plants are beautifully grown and have well-developed roots. They are hardened, can be planted directly into the planters, and are excellent performing Indoor plants - it’s our plant promise guarantee!
