Description Plant Care Q & A Description

A fabulous evergreen fern boasting vivid fronds with a striking central streak of lime green/gold.  This is an unusual and striking fern reaching up to 30cm in height which makes it perfect for ground cover.  The glossy and vibrant fronds make for a bold display if planted en masse and contrast well with other ferns such as Asplenium scolopendrium.

Arachnoides aristata is hardy in a sheltered position and will enjoy partial sun or shade.  A versatile and much sought after fern which may also be grown as a houseplant owing to its robust nature.  

We'd recommend planting in fertile, well-drained but moist soil.

Plant in partial sun - shade and in moist but well drained, fertile soil.  New growth is somewhat late (June/July).  A liquid feed such as our Seaweed extract would be beneficial.
