Asplenium Bulbiferum or Mother Fern is a tender-sweet looking fern with graceful and lacy fronds. The Mother Fern gets its name from the small plantets that develop along the fronds and brings the outdoors in with its lush, forest feel.
Size: This plant is in a 4'' pot, and from the bottom of the pot to the top of the plant, measures from 7''-10''.
Light: This plant prefers to be in bright, indirect to medium light. Direct sun will be too intense for this plant.
Water: The soil should remain moist and not dry out.
Humidity: This plant would love humidity, but does well with most indoor humidity levels. Please make sure it's not near a heater or cooling vent as that would be too drying.
Temperature: These do well with common indoor home temperatures of 65-80 F.
Soil: Peat-based commercial potting soil.
Fertilizing: We recommend fertilizing in its main growing season (Spring-Fall), using a diluted fertilizer with fish emulsion or houseplant fertilizer that's been diluted as this plant is sensitive to too much fertilizer.
Flower: Does not flower.
Toxicity: This plant is considered non-toxic to dogs & cats if ingested. We recommend keeping your plants out of reach from your fur pals and young children.
Propagation: To propagate a Mother Fern, remove a plantlet from the mature fern. Place the plantlet in a shallow pot filled with pre-moistened peat-based commercial potting mix. You'll then place the pot with the plantlet(s) in a clear plastic bag, and put the container in bright indirect light until the plantlet roots. Shortly after the plantlet has an established root, you can remove it from the plastic bag, but you'll want to keep it moist while it's growing and developing its root system.
