Plant Care Guide for Pteris Cretica 'Albo Fern':

  1. Light Requirements: Place your Albo Fern in bright, indirect light. It thrives in moderate to high light conditions but can tolerate lower light levels. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the delicate foliage.

  2. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil feels slightly dry. Ensure that the pot has proper drainage to prevent overwatering.

  3. Temperature and Humidity: Maintain a room temperature between 60-75°F (15-24°C). The Albo Fern appreciates higher humidity levels. Regular misting or using a humidifier can help create an ideal environment.

  4. Soil and Fertilization: Use a well-draining potting mix suitable for ferns. Feed your Albo Fern with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).

  5. Pruning and Maintenance: Trim any brown or damaged fronds to encourage new growth and maintain the plant's elegant appearance. Regularly clean the leaves to prevent dust buildup.

  6. Toxicity: The Albo Fern is non-toxic to pets and humans, making it a safe choice for households with pets and children.

  7. Pests: While relatively pest-resistant, occasional mealybugs or spider mites may appear. Use our Damn Bug! Organic Pesticide to treat and prevent any pest issues.
