Delta maidenhair Nest fern
Brazil and Venezuela
Plant required moderate to bright light. No direct sun. Keep soil evenly moist, but not soggy. Never allow the soil to dry out. Nest fern requires minimum 50% relative humidity. They are best suited for Terrarium.
Combine half potting mix with half peat moss. Don't use potting mix that contains fertilizer (it can dissolve too fast and burn delicate fern roots).
The Delta maidenhair fern displays kind of triangular shaped arched fronds (collection of leaves) with many small pinnate leaves that are light green in color. The black wiry stalks are an interesting characteristic of this species. These stalks give the plant it's stiff upright tree appearance - although they do arch over once they've matured.
