Fern Care Card

Adiantum raddianum ‘Fragrans’ – The most widely grown maidenhair in Australia, and one of the easiest to grow, is the Fragrans (Adiantum raddianum ‘Fragrans’). It is best grown indoors but is not suited to growing outdoors in the ground.

Uses:

Indoors: Maidenhair ferns have a variety of uses indoors. They can be grown indoors in pots or hanging baskets in a brightly lit position out of draughts. They are also a feature of some terrariums. Different maidenhair foliage is also used as a filler foliage in flower arrangements.

Patios and ferneries: They are also a feature of shaded outdoor spots such as east or southerly facing patios or the traditional fernery, where they are also grown in pots or hanging baskets.

Outdoors: the native species, A. aethiopicum, can be planted in shady rock crevices or used as an outdoor groundcover plant in a moist, shaded spot such as beside a pond.

Likes:

  • to be kept moist
  • a brightly lit position when indoors but prefers a very shaded spot if planted outdoors
  • a sheltered position away from draughts
  • regular applications of diluted liquid fertilisers (such as fish emulsion or Nitrosol)

Hates:

  • being allowed to dry out, even for a few hours (so keep well watered)
  • frost (best grown as an indoor or patio plant if in cold or harsh climates)
  • dark positions inside the house (select a well-lit position but not direct sunlight which can burn foliage)
  • draughts (do not place in windy spots such as corridors)
