Adiantum Fragrans Maidenhair Fern is an elegant fern with light green leaves. It loves steamy humidity and best suits the bathroom. If that’s not possible, then daily misting will keep this beauty glowing.

The Delta Maidenhair Fern is a native of Brazil and Venezuela. Like many houseplants, it grows in humid rainforests that keep its delicate fronds in tip-top shape. Ferns have a difficult reputation, but they are not difficult to keep looking good if you can mist them each day. Just leave a sprayer by the fern and give it a spray each morning or evening.

This graceful plant has small light green leaves on thin black stems. These stems are wiry and create strong contrast with the lighter flowing leaves. It’s this flowing appearance that gives this fern its other common name - Venus Hair Fern. In Greek, its botanical name ‘Adiantum’ means ‘unwetted’. That’s because water drips from the leaves, watering its waiting roots – clever little plant!

Venus Hair Fern is perfect for a steamy shower room, but if that’s not possible a bedroom or living room will benefit from its air-purifying properties.

How To Water And Feed Adiantum Fragrans
Humidity-loving Venus Hair Fern needs damp soil, but it shouldn’t be left in a saucer of water because the roots will rot. Test the soil with your hand. If it feels like it’s drying out on top, pop the pot in a sink of water and let it soak for a few hours.
Leave the fern to drain freely and mist the foliage. Only put it back in the display pot when it’s stopped draining. Don’t allow it to try to dry out or it will turn crispy and drop its foliage in an effort to stay alive.
In summer Delta Maidenhair Fern puts on growth, so it will need a very weak houseplant fertiliser once or twice a month. Like most houseplants, it doesn’t need food in the winter.

How Much Light Does Adiantum Fragrans Need?
Venus Hair Fern needs bright indirect light. It will struggle to grow in low light and direct light will scorch its fronds.

Where To Put Adiantum Fragrans
The best place for any fern is a steamy bathroom, but if you regularly mist it Venus Hair Fern will live happily in most rooms with bright indirect light.
Be sure to avoid radiators because the hot air makes its delicate foliage crisp up. A cold draft will damage the leaves too.
This is an elegant, graceful fern with unusual black stems and free-flowing foliage. If you can commit to damp soil and regular misting it’s a beautiful addition to any houseplant collection.
