Comments: This is a special selection (cultivar) of the Maidenhair Fern that grows well in warm climates and is especially well adapted to conservatory type structures. It makes an excellent container plant, especially when grown in hanging baskets. Provide morning sunlight and protections from the hot noon and afternoon sunlight. Groom plants periodically to remove old, spent foliage.
