Care Information

  • Site

    Light shade.

  • Temperature

    Average warmth.

  • Water

    Water well in the growing season but do not allow the compost to become waterlogged. Misting is good but the leaves do not like to be wet for long so keep well ventilated.

  • Feeding

    A liquid feed every month or so.

  • Tip

    Bronze fronds are not a feature! This can be caused by a lack of ventilation and over watering.

Blechnum gibbum

Silver Lady

Actually grows like a small tree fern, this fern will form a slender trunk with age. The palm like fronds will form a crown about 3 foot across in time creating a very tropical looking plant. Blechnums are lime intolerant so use rainwater or as a last resort if you are in a hard water area add a few drops of lemon juice to the water! Great for an East or West facing window.
