Propagated especially for Bowdens by our fern consultant Mr Dick Hayward. We have very limited stock of these plants available.
Nephrolepis cordifolia is a very common fern throughout Asia and is often thought of as a weed. Most forms of Nephrolepis cordifolia have a very upright habit, and can often create thickets of weedy ground-cover – the form found in Taiwan where it is usually found in crevices across rock faces. However it tends to remain a discrete clump with long fronds that arch outwards and hang downwards. Originally this form was regarded as a distinct species and was known as Nephrolepis auriculata. Care: It is a very easy and fast-growing plant and shows to advantage in a
hanging basket or in a pot on a jardiniere, as in the photograph. It
might even prove hardy outdoors in a very warm spot, though for most of
the UK it is a greenhouse or indoor houseplant.
