Great for adding a shaded canopy within arboreal tropical terrariums.
This scrambling perennial herb if left untrimmed can reach several metres in height, making it excellent for taller enclosures. Despite the name, this is not a true fern, though the soft feathery frond-like leaves resemble one. This plant is capable of producing small white-green bell shaped flowers which turn into small berries once they ripen.
Native to Southern Africa
These plants originate from a humid tropical rainforest environment, but don’t do well if the substrate is saturated. They do well in a loose, well drained soil with daily misting. They will happily live in partially shaded areas of a terrarium but thrive under full spectrum plant growth LED lighting as this aids colour and growth. They can be fed using a terrarium safe biofertiliser such as Superworm Frass.
Please note: Live plants will naturally vary in size and all sizes are approximate. Photos displaying multiple different colours are an example of the variety we stock, we will send random colours based upon availability.
