6" Fern, East Indian Holly


Arachnoides wood fern, or familiarly East Indian Holly, is a foresty ground cover fern native to China and Japan where he thrives under the trees, creepy crawling along the leaf litter rooting around on his rhizome feet seeking his fortune. The triangular fronds with long, pointy fingers have leathery, emerald green leaflets in identical pairs, with each finger's center rib slashed in a bright, lime green. Delicate looks belie the sturdiness of this pretty fern. The older he gets, the tougher he gets; super easy to grow without any fuss.  In a pot East Indian Holly hasn't any extra foresty soil to creepy crawl into so he fills the pot and just gets fatter. Cut fronds are pretty and long-lasting in flower arrangements.

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.
