Pteris ensiformis 'Silver Lace Fern'

$ 20.00
Size: 4" Pot
Adding an elegant touch to any space, Pteris ensiformis 'Silver Lace Fern' is a mesmerizing houseplant native to the subtropical regions of Asia. Its slender, sword-shaped leaves are a breathtaking combination of silver, green, and burgundy – further distinguished by delicate, lace-like fronds that fan out from the plant's center. This fern is a moderate grower, reaching up to 18 inches in both height and width, though the plant's sprawling growth pattern can lead to a larger spread if given the room to expand. In a terrarium or a garden, the 'Silver Lace Fern' forms a dense carpet of lush foliage, but in a pot, it can be trained to cascade beautifully over the edges, making it a perfect choice for hanging baskets or elevated displays. Its growth rate is moderate, and with the right care, it will develop a thick, lush crown of fronds that will add a tropical touch to any setting. Unlike most ferns, the 'Silver Lace Fern' doesn't produce flowers, but this doesn't diminish its appeal. Instead, the plant's main attraction lies in its foliage, which changes color depending on the light conditions. In bright, indirect light, the leaves take on a vibrant silver hue, while in lower light conditions, they develop a deeper, more muted green shade. This makes the 'Silver Lace Fern' a versatile addition to your plant collection, capable of adding visual interest no matter where it's placed. Adding to its charm, the 'Silver Lace Fern' is also relatively easy to care for. It prefers a humid environment and well-draining soil, making it a good choice for a bathroom or kitchen setting. Water it regularly, but take care not to overwater, as this can lead to root rot. In conclusion, the Pteris ensiformis 'Silver Lace Fern' is a stunning houseplant that offers a unique combination of elegance and adaptability. Its striking foliage and easy-care nature make it a popular choice among both beginner and experienced plant enthusiasts. Whether you're looking to add a touch of tropical beauty to your home or office, or you're seeking a unique addition to your plant collection, the 'Silver Lace Fern' is a choice you won't regret.

Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
