Care Information

  • Site

    As with most ferns, it grows naturally in shady spots with occasional bursts of brightness and humidity.

  • Temperature

    Generally quite warm, without drafts.

  • Water

    Water very well in the growing season but ensure that the pot has adequate drainage. Mist once daily or place in wet pebbles. Does well in bathrooms.

  • Feeding

    A fern or house plant feed, diluted and given once every two or three waterings during late spring and summer.

  • Tip

    Don't worry if it dies back over winter. Don't be tempted to try to water it back to life! It will come back (hopefully!)

Pteris quadriaurita Tricolor

Painted Brake Fern

This product has no reviews yet.  Write a Review

A terrific and unusual fern, with leaves that start off as a dark bronze colour and slowly go from red, to dark green, to green. 

Sometimes, the plant can have more than one type of leaf, depending on its gender. 

A moderately tricky plant, suitable for intermediate plant keepers.
