4" Fern, Nicolas Diamond

Two frisky ferns left alone in a greenhouse full of orchids are responsible for this unique member of the fern tribe. The showy, fan-shaped, rumpled foliage breaking into fantastic forks makes this plant, viewed from above, look just like a big mixed greens salad.  The luminous, bluish green fronds have a lovely, sateen sheen.  Nicholas' fronds sprout from hairy feet covered in soft, rusty white fur that creep along the soil surface, filling the pot, crossing each other and crawling over the pot's edge trying to get away. This tenacious plant is both cold and drought tolerant, thanks to its strong parentage (it has to be tough to have first grown up in a greenhouse filled to the brim with big, blooming orchids).

Quick Care Guide:

  • Water - Med/High (4):  Prefers more water than most, but soil can dry out periodically. Use a spray bottle to mist and increase humidity levels without soaking the soil and roots.
  • Light - Med/High (4):   Needs more light than most, but direct light not necessary. Can handle morning and afternoon sun directly on leaves.
  • Difficulty - Low/Med (2):  A little less finicky than most. Doesn't require much attention at all.
