15-20cm Ribbon Fern | Pteris Cretica 'Mayi' | 9cm Pot
- Houseplants supplied in a nursery pot as standard.
Beautiful fern with distinctive fronds
Ferns are some of the oldest varieties of plants still in existence today and they grow all over the world in differing shapes and sizes. This Pteris is better known by its common name of Ribbon Fern and it's a wonderful variety with long stalk fronds topped with variegated green and cream leaves. They can be found all over the world growing in a variety of locations. These plants love humidity; a shadier spot in a bright bathroom can be the perfect location, but humidity can be achieved anywhere in the house with a spray bottle to mist the leaves. The beautiful foliage of these ferns makes them a great houseplant for adding life and colour to any space.

Pots and Packaging
Our 9cm pots are given extra packaging to protect the plant. This extra packaging consists of a recyclable plastic blister pack which is then placed in a cardboard box for delivery.
The nursery will ensure the plant is moist while it's waiting to be picked up. Our quality control team waters the plant before packing them where necessary to make sure that the plant is suitably watered for transport. Plants with long delicate stems are secured with canes to prevent damage.
Plant on Arrival
Typically plants are delivered ready to plant and will take some time to settle, grow and look more like the product image above.
The foliage of your plant may become a little dusty, so just wipe them down with a damp cloth occasionally (try not to come into direct contact with the plant).
Advice on hot and droopy plants
If your plants are looking a little wilted right now, don’t worry! Plants like to be filled with water to keep their structure, and when it’s hot that water evaporates.
Just give them an off-schedule watering and they’ll be right as rain in no time! Be careful not to flood them - plants don’t like extremes.
