|Sometimes referred to as Adiantum aleuticum, this deciduous to semi-evergreen fern has kidney-shaped to broadly ovate leaves, gracefully attached to glossy dark brown or black stalks. Reaches 12 to 16 inches tall and across. Best suited to temperatures above 45 degrees Fahrenheit. Best grown in the ground to avoid becoming pot-bound. 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.
