Pteris ensiformis victoriae - slender brake fern

APPEARANCE: Decorative fern with variegated foliage. The fernlets are more slender than the Cretan brake fern, and vary from slim and lacy to very elongated. This variation in natural.
USE IN: Tropical garden settings 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 based 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 50 cm H x 30 cm W.
YOUR PLANTS: These plants are tube-stock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide.
