With its arching, wiry, black stems and delicate, pale green, triangular fronds, Delta Maidenhair Fern is everything you would want from an elegant fern. Often grown in terrariums where humidity levels are high. This is a charming and graceful fern that also works well in bathrooms and kitchens.
Adiantum raddianum Fragrans is also known as Adiantum cuneatum and Adiantum rubellum.
Prefers bright, indirect light such as that filtered through a curtain, can cope in shade but may lose some of its vibrancy. Dislikes direct sunlight.
Keep the soil moist at all times and don’t allow the roots to dry out.
Average household temperatures 16-24°C. Avoid Draughts.
Delta Maidenhair Fern needs plenty of humidity, making it ideal for growing in a steamy bathroom or kitchen. Raise humidity by using a pebble tray filled with water and mist regularly. Lack of humidity will cause the leaves to dry and shrivel.
Liquid fertiliser can be applied in a weak solution during the growing season.
Remove any damaged fronds immediately. If your plant has dried out, cut back to about 1cm and leave in a warm, humid environment to regenerate new growth.
