|New fronds emerge in golden red, maturing to green. This deciduous or semi-evergreen fern has kidney-shaped to broad and ovate leaves, gracefully attached to black-stalked fronds which grow to 30 inches tall. Best suited to temperatures above 45 degrees Fahrenheit, thus often used as a houseplant. It is very important that this fern does not dry out, so water when top of soil is dry to the touch. Frequent misting is welcomed also. Filtered sun or bright light from an east window is preferable. Fertilize with half strength, quick-release solution during growing season. Cut out dead or damaged fronds in spring.
