Plant Care Guide for Rabbit's Foot Fern:

  1. Light Requirements: Place your Rabbit's Foot Fern in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate lower light conditions but will thrive in moderate to high light. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the delicate fronds.

  2. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil feels slightly dry. Be mindful not to water the furry rhizomes; focus on the soil around them.

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

  4. Soil and Fertilization: Use a well-draining potting mix suitable for ferns. Feed your Rabbit's Foot 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 appearance. Avoid pruning the rhizomes as they are an essential part of the plant's charm.

  6. Toxicity: The Rabbit's Foot 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.
