Eyelash Fern

$10

Eyelash Fern, aka Actiniopteris Semiflabellata, 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, similar to an eyelash. Make sure to keep the soil evenly moist and provide extra humidity to keep your plant flourishing.

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.
They will do best in bright light. A nice bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window, either with or without blinds, depending on if the plant can handle sun. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.
They like the soil to stay consistently moist, but not soaking wet. Give them water whenever just the surface of the soil is starting to get dry.
They like a high humidity environment, give them a mist daily or as often as possible. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. Although they won't die if they don't receive enough humidity, their leaves may have some dry, crunchy, or yellow edges.
Too much direct sunlight will cause the tips to brown, but it definitely loves a lot of bright, indirect light. Be patient with ferns, as they are known to be very finicky. Allow it to get used to your home and keep the soil moist at all times.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
