INDOOR PLANT - Macho Fern in 20cm and 25cm Baskets
Macho by name Macho nature! These are some big ol' ferns ready to inject some lush jungle vibes straight into your home!
The Nephrolepsis biserrta or 'Macho' Fern is a tropical evergreen fern that can grow up to 1.8m x 1.8m in it's native environment! That's pretty impressive! It's native to tropical regions throughout the world where it grows in humid forests and swamps. It produces long palm fronds which weep gracefully creating a very tropical feel.
The Macho Fern can be easily grown indoors here in Australia - follow these tips to keep your beautiful fern happy and healthy in your home.
Give your Macho Fern a spot that gets bright, filtered light - a few feet from a lightly curtained window is ideal. Don't expose your fern to direct, mid-day sun, as it will likely burn its foliage.
A Macho Fern doesn't tolerate dryness well - try and keep it moist. A full wetting of all the soil frequently during the growing season (less in winter) is best to ensure all the roots can access moisture. Macho Ferns do not like to be near a heater or fire as this drys them out too much. In fact they will prefer the increased humidity of a bathroom, laundry or kitchen more.
WE RECOMMEND POTTING IN...
As ferns like to remain a little moist a Self-Watering pot is idea. Choose from either a recycled plastic Mr Kitly pot or a ceramic Angus and Celeste Self-Watering pot.
This Macho Fern also looks majestic hanging from your ceiling - those lush green fronds naturally hang and look just as impressive from their underside. This fern in an Angus & Celeste Macrame Hanging Planter would make for a glorious combination!
