Blechnum Silver Lady - 15 CM
Approx $15.51 USD
Blechnum, known as hard fern, is native and restricted only to New Zealand! They grow in conditions that would be familiar to any fern
grower: humid, cool but not cold, diffuse light. Given the right conditions indoors, they can be lovely ferns that will round out a
collection of ferns. Easy to grow and hardy in a home!
Thrives indoors in a warm, bright position protected from direct sunlight. Will tolerate medium levels of light. Provide a humid environment for best results. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Keep soil consistently moist but do not allow pot to stand in a saucer of water.
Can be grown outdoors in a shaded, frost-free position.
Watering needs: Blechnum ferns prefer regular water throughout the growing season. These are fairly cold hardy as far as ferns go, so do not relish any prolonged dry period. It's also very important to provide high humidity, whether through a mister, humidifier or by setting the pot in a tray full of damp pebbles.
Lighting needs: Like many ferns, they prefer partial shade or dappled sunlight at the very most. They dislike direct sunlight and will strenuously object. It is possible to acclimate your fern to a greater amount of light, but only by providing proportionally greater amounts of water and humidity.
