30cm 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.

About your plant

The plant pictured to the right is fresh from its nursery and indicates what you are going to receive. Your plant will arrive in a standard pot (any planters displayed are for illustrative purposes only, so will not be included with your order). Delivering directly to your door, our trusted tropical nursery provides optimal growing conditions for each plant, so you can rest assured that they will arrive in good condition.


Plant Theory has sustainability at its heart. This means that every plant will be delivered in environmentally friendly packaging. The intuitive box design is plastic free and will keep your plant safe on their journey to your home.
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).
