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.

Show off your plant in style

Please note, all of our house plants arrive in a nursery pot as standard. You can find a more permanent home for your plant in our wide range of indoor plant pots.

How your order will arrive
Your plant will be happy in a well-lit location. With most houseplants, it is best to avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch their leaves. We believe that a little way back from a window in a bright room is optimum.

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).
