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.

Ferns are best placed in bright rooms with lots of indirect or filtered light. A shadier spot within a bright room can be ideal.
The soil should be kept relatively moist at all times but it shouldn't sit in water as this will cause the roots to rot. Allow the water to run right through the soil and out of the drainage holes of the nursery pot, leaving the water 10 minutes or so to sink through before returning to the display pot. Mist the plant to increase humidity.
In the growing season add some liquid feed to the water once every couple of weeks.
