Maidenhair ferns originate from high humidity areas, like near the base of a waterfall. A bright bathroom would be an ideal location, or they would work in other rooms with daily misting. Their delicate leaves make them a prized plant in any home. The new leaves have a reddish-yellow hue and deepen into green as they grow. Nestled into a 6 inch wide white ceramic pot, this fern is quite sizable with its leaves reaching over the sides.
