Heart Leaf Fern
(aka Hemionitus arifolia)
I am native to Southeast Asia.
I have dark green heart-shaped fronds, about 2-3 inches long and borne on black stems. My foliage is thick, leathery and slightly waxy.
My beautiful stems can reach a height of 6-8" high.
I thrive in indirect bright light, high humidity and warm temperatures. Increase humidity by keeping a gravel drainage tray under me.
My foliage is the star attraction.
I am considered fairly low maintenance.
I can thrive in the right conditions.
Keep me moist but not sitting in water. Ideally let tap water sit overnight to let the harsh chemicals evaporate.
I am being studied for my beneficial effects in the treatment of diabetes.
