The Heart Leaf Fern is sought after by houseplant enthusiasts for its dwarf growth habits, making it ideal for small compact spaces. They thrive best in humid conditions with filtered indirect light, so are ideal for warm bright bathrooms or kitchens. They will however happily live in any part of your home or even office space, as long as they are provided with sufficient water and humidity, by means of spritzing or a pebble tray.

Pair this cutie with a funky classical planter and pop this unusual houseplant on your coffee table or on a beautifully styled shelf near filtered light, and note how often your beauty becomes a fantastic spark for conversation.

Please note: The Heart Leaf Fern is non-toxic to pets and humans, however, it is best to keep them out of reach of pets and children.
