Nephrolepis Cotton Candy

If you love a bright pop of colour then Nephrolepis Cotton Candy is the fern for you.

The Nephrolepis Cotton Candy with its bright green almost yellow foliage is oh so soft and fluffy hence the cute name Cotton Candy. 

Her fluffy chartreuse fronds are soft clouds of modern interior chic, especially when she’s placed against a contrasting wall of bright white or even black.

Cotton Candy will grow in a pot on your bookcase or coffee table and enjoys a hanging basket if you don’t like moving stuff to dust.

Ferns will also grow outside in the right conditions. Cotton Candy just needs a shady, cool spot to flourish either in a well-watered pot or in the border is just fine so long as its moist. Nephrolepis species are frost tender but can be grown in mild areas.


Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I look great in a hanging basket or a modern pot on a coffee table. If you have a sheltered garden I enjoy a cool border too. Anywhere you need texture and bright colour, I’m your girl.
  • I grow to: In a pot, I’ll stay relatively small and compact but in a garden, I can reach 100 by 60cms.
  • Where to place me: I  love a bright sunny spot or I can handle a darker corner, just don't put me in direct sunlight as I will burn. I like shadier spots because my fluffy leaves are delicate.
  • How far to space me:  Give 50cms of elbow room in the border.
  • Soil Conditions:  My roots appreciate moist soils, but not waterlogged. I thrive in a fertile soil so use a good quality potting mix that holds extra moisture.
