6" Fern, Hurricane


We have run out of stock for this item.

Like the view on a weather map of a raging hurricane with its eye in the center, the Asplenium Hurricane's fronds whirl and twirl clockwise, chasing each other in a perpetual race. Lustrous, apple green blades are deeply folded and leathery textured with ruffled edges. Hurricane is a low and slow growing fern but old timers can get up to 2' and maybe more. In the olden days, the Birdsnest fern was called "spleenwort" for its purported usefulness in treating ailments of the spleen. Even if your spleen isn't acting up it's a fun plant to have! We just want one so we can watch it twirl.

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.
