Ferns are from a very ancient family of plants, rich with symbolic meaning. They express sincerity and allure, deemed symbols of luck, riches, protection and rainmaking.
For the New Zealand Maori, the unfurling fern frond is the basis of the koru which represents peace, tranquillity and spirituality, along with new growth or new beginnings. The fern (or Aya) is an African Adinkra symbol of endurance and resourcefulness. For the Japanese, the fern symbolises hope of posterity.
Today, a fern is seen to gift the receiver with the hope of confidence, shelters, wealth and happiness. The fern is considered to have protective properties for the home or office and is an air-purifying houseplant.
Plant Type Indoor
If well looked after, a fern can become a plant for life and become fuller and fuller.
Plant for Thought
Ferns can be great both in hanging pots or standing pots. They add interest to earns, fireplaces and study shelves and with their air purifying qualities, they do well in areas frequently used in the home or office.
MINNIKIN packaging is not your Fern’s ideal long-term home. You can either place your plant into your favourite pot directly (and then take it out to water) or replant it in a pot the same size as your Fern. Replant after 6-8 months into the next size pot.
They like a bright place but not full afternoon sun (so avoid south and west facing aspects).
Ferns don’t like to dry out, water about a teacup every 3-4 days depending on the temperature. They also benefit from misting.
