Ornamental fern with variegated ribbon-like foliage, light in the centre with deep green edges. Plant in cool shaded rock gardens or indoors for best results. Please note : Plants are living variable things, not factory-made, and the leaf colour may vary from plant to plant, as the plant matures and grows, or in response to light levels and cultivation conditions.
DESCRIPTION: Decorative fern with variegated ribbon-like foliage. Perfect indoors or in a shaded location in the garden. USE IN: Rock gardens as a border or for creating depth using layers in under planting. Suited to containers, terrariums and indoor gardens. PLANTING: Plant carefully ensuring the crown of the fern is above the soil line. Ensure the growing medium is well drained to avoid wet feet. Remove old fronds to keep plants looking fresh and avoid disease. Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. CARE: Keep moist during dry periods. Ferns thrive in humid conditions. Apply a slow release fertiliser during spring and a liquid fertiliser every 4 weeks during the warmer months, take care to dilute your solution to half the recommended dose to avoid burn. Re-pot container plants only if they are outgrowing their pots. HEIGHT & WIDTH: up to 0.8m H x 0.6m W. YOUR PLANTS:These plants are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide. May be supplied as 'plugs', slightly smaller than our usual tubestock but with a healthy root system ready for planting or potting on.
