A prehistoric-looking fern with grey-green, flattened, antler-shaped fronds. Because it grows slowly, it will not need a huge amount of water or frequent repotting. Photographed here in Green Daisy Pot. Pet friendly.
Enjoys plenty of light and humidity (as in a bathroom) but dislikes direct sun and cold draughts. Allow the compost to dry out slightly between watering. Rusty-brown spores forming on the leaves are a natural part of its cycle and part of the charm.
