Nephrolepis species

Family: Lomariopsidaceae

Countries: Americas, Colombia, South America

This fern, a species of Nephrolepis, was very kindly given to me by a friend.  This Nephrolepis fern is both epiphytic and terrestrial – it will grow well if mounted onto cork or other tree bark, and the same fern will also grow well if planted in moist, well-drained terrarium compost.  I have found that this particular Nephrolepis fern thrives when it’s grown in a situation that enjoys indirect, filtered light; keep plants well away from harsh or bright light, which may scorch this fern’s leaves.  This fern also requires a very humid environment to flourish.
