Rabbit Foot Fern (Davallia Fejeensis) - 25cmHB
Pot diameter - 25cm hanging basket
Place the rabbit foot fern in indirect light. During the winter months in the northern hemisphere, a north-facing window is an ideal location for the fern. During the spring and summer months, when the sun is higher on the horizon, choose an east-facing window with filtered light. Avoid south- and west-facing windows where the direct sunlight may burn the fern's leaves.
Water the fern sparingly. Allow the soil in the container to dry out slightly between waterings. When the soil is dry or almost dry to the touch, it's time to water. Over-watering will cause the leaves to yellow and may result in root rot. Do not allow the plant to sit in water.
Mist the fuzzy rhizomes regularly. Give them water every few days, or as needed, to prevent them from drying out.
Maintain a 60–75 °F (16–24 °C) environment. The rabbit foot fern will thrive indoors in comfortable house temperatures. If the temperature drops below 60 °F (16 °C), check the plant before watering and only water when the soil is dry to the touch. If the temperature rises above 75 °F (24 °C), you may need to water the plant more often.
Grow the fern in a moderately humid environment. If your heat is on in your home during winter months, consider using a room humidifier where your rabbit foot fern is located.
If you don't have a room humidifier, place the fern's container on a tray of wet pebbles to increase the humidity around the plant. Refill the tray as the water evaporates.
Fertilize the rabbit foot fern monthly. Any liquid houseplant fertilizer can be used to feed the fern, but use only about half the recommended amount. Too much fertilizer may scorch the leaves. Do not fertilize newly potted plants for at least four to six months, or until the plant is showing signs of active growth.
Non-toxic to pets.
