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.
