Microsorum diversifolium 'Heart Fern'

$ 34.00
Size: 6" Pot
Embodying the sentiment of its moniker, Microsorum diversifolium 'Heart Fern' is a charming houseplant hailing from Australia. The plant flaunts heart-shaped, deep green leaves that are adorned with a subtle gloss, and strikingly intricate veins that etch a pattern of life across the foliage. This captivating beauty will grow to about 12 inches in height and width, but its unique, creeping growth habit means it can expand its charm beyond these measurements. In a terrarium or glass cloche, the Heart Fern will develop a dense, lush canopy of foliage, while in a pot, its fronds will gently spill over the sides, creating an enchanting waterfall effect. Though it may grow slowly, it is consistent in its growth, gradually developing a thick rhizome that resembles a small, knotted trunk at the base of the plant where it meets the soil. The Heart Fern thrives in high humidity, and its luscious, velvety fronds are a testament to its tropical origins. While it is an excellent choice for an indoor plant, it can also be used outdoors in a sheltered, shaded position, where it can add a touch of tropical allure to any space. Adding to the visual feast provided by its foliage, this fern occasionally surprises with tiny, inconspicuous sporangia on the underside of its leaves, a delightful botanical treat for the observant gardener. These sporangia are the fern's way of reproducing, and though they may not offer the showy spectacle of a flower, they are a fascinating display of the plant's lifecycle. Incredibly versatile and relatively easy to care for, the Microsorum diversifolium 'Heart Fern' is a must-have for any plant enthusiast looking to add a touch of verdant elegance to their collection. Whether you're a seasoned green thumb or a beginner gardener, this stunning fern is sure to steal your heart with its endearing charm and lush foliage. It is, without a doubt, a living testament to the captivating beauty of nature.

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!
