For all the indoor gardening novices who need help keeping their leafy friends alive, we asked Carmen Devito of Groundworks Inc. and west elm Market’s Brooklyn Blend Potting Soil to create care sheets for 8 of her favorite houseplants. Use them to greenify your home this spring!
Name: Maiden Hair Fern (Adiantum Capillus-Veneris)
Light: Partly Shade-Filtered Light
Water: Medium to High
Special Need: High Humidity
My personal favorite fern is the southern species called Maiden Hair, and it is as beautiful and delicate as a goddess. A great way to keep ferns happy is to place them on a tray of wet pebbles, and to group a bunch of these and other moisture lovers together to help increase the humidity.
A Note On Pets: Always check with your vet before bringing a new plant into your home.
