Eyelash Fern

$10

Actiniopteris Semiflabellata aka Eyelash Fern is another un-fern like fern. It is extremely unusual and quite fun to look at. Native to tropical Africa and the Arabian Peninsula, it grows in a rocky, arid environment. It is a miniature variety that has fan shaped fronds and may reach 8" tall or so. Make sure to keep the soil evenly moist, but not soggy, and provide extra humidity to keep your plant flourishing.

They do not need to see the sun directly. But filtered sunlight through glass is fine. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day, like somewhere shady outside or inside behind a window.
The minimum light requirement for them is 0 - 3 feet away from the nearest light source. A good bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that right next to a window. Like all succulents, they wouldn't die if they don't have enough light but would grow towards the light.
They need to be watered when the first 1 - 2 inches of soil is dry. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It may vary depends on your environment and light condition, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you do the watering.
They like a high humidity environment, give them a mist daily or as often as possible. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. It doesn't mean they'll die if they don't get enough humidity, they may get some crunch edges or yellow rims if they don't have enough humidity but will survive.
Too much direct sunlight will cause the tips to brown, but it definitely loves a lot of bright, indirect light.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
