Cotton Candy ferns get their name from their soft feel and fluffy appearance. Their fronds are covered in tiny, ruffled, round leaves, in a bright chartreuse green colour. They are a great option for adding a bright pop of colour to your home, and look great as either a potted plant, or a hanging one.
Height: 12in - 48in
Spread: 12in - 18in
Pet Safe: Mildly toxic to pets if ingested.
CareGeneral Maintenance: Repot when your plant becomes rootbound, to a pot 2-3 inches larger. Do not allow to dry out, or the leaves will get crispy. Propagate by division.
Temperature: Thrives in normal household temperatures, between 15º-26º Celsius. Keep away from drafts and drastic temperature changes. Ferns love high humidity, so they will greatly appreciate a pebble tray, humidifier, or being misted.
Light: Bright indirect light is ideal. Direct sun may scorch the leaves. They can tolerate slightly lower light conditions, but will grow at a slower rate.
Watering: Keep soil evenly moist, but not soaked. Water when the top 1-2 inches of the soil are dry to the touch. Ensure your pot has adequate drainage to avoid the roots sitting in excess water.
Soil: Any well-draining potting mix will work.
Fertilizer: Feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer, diluted to half the recommended strength, once every 3 weeks during the growing season.
