Ferns are among some of the most beautiful and easiest houseplants around. There are tons of variations so there is lots of opportunity to decorate without repeating.  With some simple care and attention, ferns will add beautiful lushes of green to your home. 

Growing Tips


Ferns prefer to have their soil kept moist, but not wet. If they dry out they will become droopy and limp. It is best for ferns not to dry out between waterings.


There are a few ferns that can handle direct sun; however, majority of fern varieties grow best in medium to bright light, but not direct sun. The leaves can suffer from sunburn and look like they have been bleached. 


Most ferns like an average room temperature of 16- 25 degrees Celsius. They also love humidity, making them perfect for kitchens and bathrooms. 

Plant Food:

For best results, fertilize in the spring and summer months using a houseplant fertilizer. 

Animal Concerns:

Many ferns are toxic to animals. Consuming them can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and irritation.
