Interiorscapers love this easy to grow, good-looking plant and so will you. It’s durable and much more drought tolerant than other ferns – even forgiving a bit of minor neglect. The waxy coating on the thick shiny dark green leaves prevents it from drying out and shedding leaves. Austral Gem tolerates most indoor conditions, including bright indirect light and even shady locations. Water thoroughly when the soil starts to dry. Grow this, like other ferns, in a hanging basket or a container set upon a pedestal or plant stand. Use it as a nice focal point or mix with other indoor containers.
Ferns are an amazing way to bring lots of color and life to all gardens, natural areas, and lawns. They are great and will grow in areas where other plants cannot. They grow where the soils are moist and where they receive very little sun. There are also some available that grows in full sunlight. They range in color from light green to a very dark green.
