Plant Bio

Not a true fern, the Frosty Fern belongs to the ancient lineage of clubmosses. Native to the Azores and parts of Africa, this low-growing plant has frond-like leaves and spreads far and wide. Its fern-like characteristics and the slightly silvery appearance of its foliage, resembling frost on a cold winter morning, have given it its common name Frosty Fern. It will thrive in bright indirect light and when kept moist. These plants are great for terrariums where humidity levels are high.
