Pteris ensiformis ‘Evergemiensis’

Family: Pteridaceae

Countries: Asia

Pteris ensiformis ‘Evergemiensis’ is a variegated fern that is also known by its common name of Silver Lace Fern.  Pteris ensiformis ‘Evergemiensis’ requires bright, filtered light, (but take care to avoid harsh, direct light, which will damage this fern’s fronds) and high humidity to flourish.  This fern can grow happily in a sunny bathroom, or another area of your home that receives bright, indirect light.  If you do not have the humid environment that this fern requires, you could grow your fern inside a bottle garden or in a terrarium, or vivarium.  These enclosures will enable you to easily provide the ideal growing conditions that this fern desires.  Or you could grow your Pteris ensiformis ‘Evergemiensis’ fern as a houseplant.  Due to the fact that this fern needs a very humid environment to flourish – you will need to mist Pteris ensiformis ‘Evergemiensis’ daily, or position your plant above a saucer of water to provide the necessary humidity.  Take care to place your fern’s pot onto an upturned saucer, on top of the water, to prevent your fern’s compost and roots from becoming permanently steeped in water.
