Ferns are now still as trendy as ever before. Since Victorian times they’ve been used for the nice and exotic looking houseplants they are, displayed either by themselves or inside a terrarium or greenhouse, where the environment can be made most appropriate to raise these plants.

This one is very common. Probably because of how easy and fast it grows, for it sprouts without any trouble, with its light-green curly buds unfolding from within the earth to rise tall, as high as the plant’s age allows.

Maidenhair Fern


For maidenhair ferns, temperatures should be neither too chilly nor hot — keep it at 15-20 degrees C.

Care to shield the plant from the outside’s hostile weather that creeps in from any open windows during the peak of winter. Temperatures beyond this cozy interval might cause yellowing and stunt this fern’s growth.


In truth, ferns are made of light much more than they are of darkness, so don’t let their misty, crawly appearance fool you into thinking otherwise. They prefer the brightest spots, though ideally never direct sunlight as it can easily and irreversibly burn the paper-thin leaflets.
