This fern can be kept outside year round, but requires bright morning light or dappled light all day and good air circulation. The growing medium is AAA New Zealand sphagnum moss and mounted on an a redwood or cedar backboard.

When fertilizing, use 1/4 strength Miracle-Gro or SuperThrive every third or fourth watering. There are smaller sizes available and priced accordingly.
