LIGHT: These plants prefer filtered sunlight or early morning sun and shade in the afternoon.
WATERING: Keep plants well-watered during the warmer months of the year, but allow them to dry out a fair bit between watering in warmer months.
NUTRIENT: Apply half-strength liquid fertilizer during the growth period and do not feed during Winter. Slow-release granules may also be used but be very careful not to overfeed.
TEMPERATURE & HUMIDITY: Normal room temperature (18-20 degrees) during the growing period, cooler during the winter months. The plants do best when they receive a relatively high humid atmosphere.
SIZE: This plant can be 30-50 cm in height and anything up to 1 m in width.
PROBLEMS: The premature death of fronds may be caused by a lack of water or temperatures that are too cool. The ferns are generally free from attacks by pests.
SPECIAL CARE: If creeping stems have covered the surface of the pot, repot in early spring.
BOTANIC NAME: Davallia Carnariensis
