  • Broad deep green foliage
  • The ideal hanging fern
  • Relatively easy care
  • Will be happy on a protected patio or balcony.
  • Loves moisture

The Macho fern is no doubt a statement plant, even among a crowd! (This is how we spotted these beauties at the growers). With their striking deep green foliage and long robust fronds, there is no doubt everyone should have this spectacular beauty somewhere in their home.

The Macho Fern as a houseplant gets pretty large, making it the ideal hanging fern, as its fronds tend to drape downwards due to their length and weight. Creating a gorgeous canopy of soft celestial foliage. Perfect for a protected Patio or Balcony with dappled lighting.

Other fabulous styling tips include placing your Macho fern on a stand in a medium to brightly lit room or bathroom, where it will create an eyecatching floor-standing piece.

Be sure to provide your Macho fern houseplant with evenly moist potting mix and good humidity, to avoid dry leaf tips and to keep your fern thriving.

Please note: The Macho Fern is considered mildly toxic. Best kept out of reach of pets and children.

Follow these care instructions to keep your Macho Fern happy and healthy:

Light: Bright filtered light is best.
Water: Water once the surface of the soil is dry to the touch, however, avoid complete drying out.
Humidity: Medium to high humidity is ideal.
Fertilizer: Use a well balanced organic fertilizer or a fertilizer specially formulated for ferns every two weeks during active growth of Spring through Summer.
