If you are a lover of unique and funky houseplants, then you’ll fall head over heels for this adorable stunner with its deep green leathery heart-shaped leaves, delicately perched on top of wiry fuzzy stems. This cutie just screams Jungle vibes.

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.

Follow these care instructions to keep your Heart Leaf Fern happy and healthy.

Water: Water thoroughly and allow the top 1-2cm of soil to dry out before watering again. Never let the soil become completely dry. 
Light: Bright indirect light is best - keep out of direct sun and mist the plant to increase humidity.
Humidity: This plant loves high humidity - increase humidity by misting or place plant in an area of high humidity such as a bathroom.  
Fertilize: Feed once a month in spring and summer with a balanced fertilizer diluted by half.
