There is something truly special about the Maidenhair fern, with its delicate lush green foliage and gorgeous black stems that have an air of confidence in its ability to thrive in the perfect conditions, even though it may not look like it.

Maidenhair Ferns as houseplants can create a gorgeous accent in a bathroom or kitchen where they will often receive a good amount of humidity. Something they need to keep their foliage looking full and pristine.

Pair your Maidenhair Fern with something sleek, and use it as a Tabletop accent piece or a bathtub buddy. 

Please note: Adiantum is not considered toxic, however, they prefer to not be eaten.

Follow these instructions to keep your Maidenhair happy & healthy.

Water: Water well and allow 1-2cm of soil to dry before watering again, best to keep this plant slightly moist. If kept in a bright spot, can be allowed to stand in a tray of water.
Light: Bright, indirect light - the more - the better it will grow.
Humidity: High humidity is important to avoid leaves drying out and becoming crisp.
Fertilize: Diluted Balanced Liquid Fertilizer every two weeks from Spring to Summer, no need to feed in winter.
