    Description: Fern 'Heart', scientifically known as Hemionitis arifolia, is a charming tropical plant admired for its small, heart-shaped leaves. The glossy, dark green leaves are both distinctive and elegant, adding a touch of whimsy and beauty to any space. Native to Southeast Asia, this evergreen fern thrives in various indoor settings, making it a delightful addition to plant collections. Fern 'Heart' typically grows up to 6-8 inches tall and wide, making it an excellent choice for adding texture and visual interest to small spaces in homes and offices.

    Care Instructions:


    • Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate lower light conditions. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the delicate leaves.


    • Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil is dry. Reduce watering in the winter months when the plant's growth slows.


    • Thrives in high humidity environments. Regular misting or using a humidity tray can help maintain the necessary moisture levels, especially in dry indoor conditions.


    • Prefers temperatures between 60°F and 75°F (16°C - 24°C). Protect from cold drafts and temperatures below 50°F (10°C).


    • Use a well-draining, rich organic potting mix. A mix containing peat moss, perlite, and compost works well to support healthy growth.


    • Feed with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding in the fall and winter.


    • Remove any dead or damaged leaves to maintain appearance and encourage new growth. Regular pruning helps prevent disease and promotes a tidy, healthy plant.
