 Care Specks:

These plants partial shade to filtered sun, ensuring protection from afternoon sun.

Allow it to mostly dry between waterings but not entirely

This plant is suited to most climates - talk about adaptable!

Give them well draining soil - adding about 20% to 30% perlite into your standard premium potting mix will do the trick.


These guys are tropical/sub-tropical so prefer high humidity - dark brown, crisp looking marks on leaf edges are usually caused by low humidity. 

These ferns are considered non-toxic for pets


These plants are moderately frost tolerant but are easily killed by hard freezes.
