The Toughest Fern Out There
I forgot to water this poor fern – not once – but TWICE! But since it didn’t turn brown or feel crispy, I put it in the dog dish to water it and see what might survive.
It took 3 days the first time and 2 days the second time, but this little fern survived my neglect.
Say hello to the Heart Fern (hemionitis arifolia). This cute little fern is a native to southeast Asia. It grows both in the soil AND on trees! Hemionitis arifolia needs moist, well draining soil and high humidity. Heart Fern is a tiny beauty at only 6 – 8 inches tall. AND, of course, can handle a little neglect! 😀
Time for me to pick a pot and get this sweetie in a proper home!
