Comments: An attractive, variegated evergreen fern that brightens a shady area. Since it is only hardy in zones 10 and 11, its appeal is for growing indoors and no other rooms suit it as well as the bathroom where there is high humidity. They grow well in dish gardens and terrariums. For those lucky enough to have a greenhouse, this fern is a good choice for that shady spot in it.
