Pteris 'Silver Ribbon' Fern - 4"

Pteris 'Silver Ribbon' Fern - 4"



USDA Zones 9-12


Pteris ferns, also known as brake ferns, look different than your average fern. Their beautiful variegation makes them stand out from many!

Though they may seem difficult, for a fern they are relatively easy. As long as they receive adequate moisture & are kept away from dry air these plants will thrive! 

While most ferns will die when they dry out, Pteris ferns are a little more tolerant to dry soil. However, they are not drought tolerant.

These plants are native to jungles & rainforests. They grow under the shade of the tree canopy in an environment heavy with moisture & humidity. To keep your plant in the best shape you'll want to emulate this environment!


Indoors they can be started & grown year round. They will grow at a moderate rate, eventually growing to be ~18" tall!
