Painted Brake Fern | Pteris Quadriaurita 'Tricolor' | 12cm Pot | By Plant Theory

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 Quadricolor, otherwise known as the Painted Brake Fern is a semi-evergreen variety that can be planted outside as well as potted up as a houseplant. These plants are great for filling in space between other plants, be that in a bed or a potted display, though they can happily stand alone as beautiful plants in their own pot.

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).
