The Rabbit's Foot fern has many intricate uniquely shaped leaves that are lightweight and soft. It gets its name from the "furry" rhizomes that grow out of the soil and down the sides of its pot. It can grow up to 3-4 ft, and is popular in hanging displays to show the furry rhizomes.
Plant Care tips
- Lighting: This plant prefers medium indirect sunlight but can survive in low light situations.
- Temperature: Ideally, it should be in the temperature range of 65° F to 80° F at all times.
- Fertilizing: Feed your plant once or twice a year in the spring and summer with a basic houseplant food at half the recommended strength.
- Watering: Water the plant thoroughly and allow the top 75% of the soil to dry before watering again. Allow the soil to dry completely before watering if the plant is placed in low light. Regularly mist or shower the leaves to prevent them from drying out. Water your plant less in the winter, when light levels are lower and growth has slowed. Overwatering will cause leaves to turn yellow and fall off.
