Maiden Hair Fern - Adiantum sp.
Maidenhair ferns can be found natively around Melbourne Australia and need to be in a very bright position. Look for a spot where there is enough natural (indirect) light. This beauty is easy to care for and loves water. Maidenhair ferns are one of the few plants that you cannot over-water! They love to be consistently moist at all times. The easiest way to achieve this is to keep a deep tray under the pot they are in (self watering pots work great for this too.)If the tray is empty, add water to it, if it’s full then your job here is done! In summer they can drink up quite a bit of water so be sure to keep the tray topped up at all times. In winter the tray can be allowed to empty for a short time without damaging the plant.
