Live Heart Fern Plant
Ships in 100% Biodegradable 4" Coconut Fiber Planter  

Perfectly heart-shaped leaves sit atop black wiry fuzzy stems. Unlike most fern varieties, the leaves are thick, leathery, and slightly glossy. They range from 2-4 inches in length and stems can rise up to around 10 inches tall. 

This unique and beautiful specimen loves to get it's feet wet and is ideal for containers with or without drainage.  Heart Fern is native to Southeast Asia and regions with warm temperatures and high humidity. It's well-suited for terrariums or kokedama.  Heart Fern is an epiphyte, meaning it can grow upon trees as well. Would look amazing anywhere in your home or office in a hanging cache!
