Where is it from?

Heart Leaf Ferns are native to the tropical regions in Southeast Asia. You can find them thriving under dense, thick tree foliage, within the crooks and crannies of trees and the damp forest floor.

Heart Leaf Fern: Medicinal Properties.

Heart Leaf Ferns have been studied for their beneficial effects in treating diabetes. In Asia, they have also been used to help treat cancer.

Plant Care Tips: 

  • Light: Prefers bright indirect light. Keep away from direct sunlight, or their leaves will damage.
  • Water: Heart ferns are extremely water-loving. Keep the soil slightly moist, and allow the soil to almost dry in between watering. Drain excess water.
  • Soil: Use well-draining soil that is fertile, humus-rich and moist. Make sure it can retain a high level of moisture for long periods. 
  • Humidity: Heart ferns love high humidity. They prefer levels of 60-80%. Regularly mist them or place them in a terrarium to maintain high humidity levels.
  • Propagate: Through division. Divide the mother plant’s root ball into several smaller root balls and place into separate pots.

Is the Heart Leaf Fern for me?

Looking for something out of the ordinary? The heart-shaped fern is a unique alternative to a traditional fern! They are dainty and adorable, with heart-shaped foliage placed upon small brown, fuzzy stems. The foliage starts small and quickly grows to about 10 cm long. This water and humidity-loving plant would suit a bathroom or kitchen with bright indirect light. 

However, they can be a bit more awkward than other ferns. They require their relative humidity quite high, and if they don’t, they’ll end up looking like sad plants. If your house is very dry, we recommend growing them in terrariums, where humidity can be regulated!

Heart Leaf Fern: Common Problems

Root rot: Hear Leaf ferns are prone to getting root rot. To prevent this, make sure all excess water is drained off after watering. Use well-drained soil that can retain high moisture levels.

Common Pests: Mealybugs, aphids and scale. Remove these with a mixture of neem oil or cotton swabs.

Crispy leaves: These ferns love high humidity. If they don’t get the right levels, then their leaves can turn crispy, dry and even look dead. If you don’t have a relatively high humid room, then these plants will suffer. Putting them in a terrarium retains the surrounding humidity and helps them look their best! If you need a quick A&E, place a plastic bag over it and then get a terrarium!
