WART FERN - Polypodium Scolopendria

Native to Polynesia, Malaysia, Taiwan, South Africa and West Africa this fern has large fronds growing 2 -3 feet long.

WATER: Like most ferns it like to be evenly moist at all times but not wet. It benefits from a soil with a lot of peat or sphagnum moss.

TEMPERATURE/LIGHT: Wart Ferns like to be kept above 60 degrees and they enjoy a medium light. Wart Fern can tolerate a drier atmosphere that most ferns.

At this time, there is limited availability.
