Description

Fish tail fern is a ground-dwelling or terrestrial fern, native to southeastern Asia. It spreads slowly by rhizomes (below ground stems) and stolons (above ground lateral stems). The leaf stems or petioles are covered with sparse to moderately numerous, one-color, reddish to light brown hair-like scales. The fronds are evergreen, long, once-pinnate, or feather like, and end in two or three forked division like the tail of a fish. This gives the fern a frilly look. The fronds are often arching or drooping.

Landscape Use

Groundcover, Houseplant

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.
