The Leather Fern is an evergreen fern with elegant dark green glossy triangular fronds. The broad arching fronds can grow up to 1metre long.
POSITION Provide indirect bright light - avoiding direct sunlight. Direct sunlight will scorch the leaves and turn the rhizomes brown, especially with low humidity levels. A small amount of sun (not midday sun) will not cause too much harm and can encourage plant health, but it's a bit risky with this fern.
WATER During spring and summer try and keep the soil moist at all times, without leaving the soil soaked. This species only has small roots so it's taking most of it's water and nutrients from the top soil and storing them within it's rhizomes.
HUMIDITY Increase the humidity in a room to keep the plant looking healthy. Misting will help but your likely to need to place the plant on a humidity tray or use a humidifier when the air is dry.
