The rabbit’s foot fern plant gets its name from the furry rhizomes that grow on top of the soil and resemble a rabbit’s foot. The rhizomes often grow over the side of the pot, adding an extra dimension to the plant. Functional as well as decorative, the rhizomes absorb moisture and nutrients as they crawl across the moist soil.
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.
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 stroring them within it's rhizomes. From the beginning of spring until the end of fall use a diluted liquid feed once every 2 - 3 weeks.
This plant requires medium care.
