Pteris albo marginata is a slow-growing evergreen fern that can grow 60cm x 60cm. It has beautiful flowing foliage and is great for brightening up a dark spot.

Pot Size: 13cm

POSITION
Keep this evergreen in bright, indirect light and constant room temperature. It won't go dormant. With consistent care, it will grow year-round. 

SOIL
When choosing a potting mix, bear in mind the plant’s epiphyte habit, growing on other plants in its natural habitat, and choose a very loose, free- draining medium. Bark, grit and pumice or an orchid mix work well. 

WATER
Water thoroughly, then allow the top 2.5 cm of soil to dry out slightly before watering again.

Fronds that are yellow and wilted are a sign of overwatering. Cut back on water and trim off damaged fronds. Check the plant's roots to see if they have rotted - if they're mostly black, get rid of it. It's too far gone.

MAINTENANCE
Repot in spring, when the roots have filled the pot. Move the fern to a pot that's only slightly larger. Use a pot with a drainage hole to prevent soggy soil. 

Feed during the growing season at a low dosage. There is no need to feed during the winter at all, as these aren’t hungry plants and you could risk damage.
