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.

Care

General 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.
