  1. I recently bought this fern and am really pleased with it's ease of care. It hangs in a blinded east window. The humidity in my home stays around 60-70%. I do keep the heat to a minimum (68-71 degrees). Actually, this has been one of the easiest ferns I have been able to grow inside the home. It is always a conversation starter. People always coment on the texture of the leaves and everyone wants a baby plant! Hard to find but well worth the effort.
