The thorns serve as protection against predators as well as to grip onto the host plant to reach sunlight. Leaves are up to 80 mm long, sickle-shaped, shiny dark green with a prominent vein. It has small, white, fragrant flowers appearing from September to December. The fruit is a red berry. The seed is round, shiny and black.

In general, ferns are low-maintenance and hardy, but they do require a bit of upkeep. Ferns require a lot of indirect bright light and not direct sunlight. You can keep it in balconies but make sure no direct sun falls on the leaves. As the ferns have fragile leaves, they tend to burn.

Ferns in general love humidity. You can spray in the air above the fern and let the mist settle on leaves. Most ferns like an evenly moist soil with regular waterings. Water them daily but just enough to keep the soil moist and not wet. Allowing the soil to dry out between waterings stresses these plants.
