Get to Know the Maidenhair Fern

Adiantum aethiopicum is an Australian-native species of Maidenhair Fern and is both beautiful and resilient.


Maidenhair Ferns work inside and out, but they need a well-lit spot away from direct sunlight as it can burn the leaves. Keep them sheltered from draughts, too.


Keep it moist as they dislike dryness. Get yourself a self-watering pot to make life easier.


Maidenhair Ferns can be resurrected by cutting off the lower fronds and plunging them into a bucket of water until air bubbles stop rising to the surface.
