Hemionitis arifolia - Heart Fern
This delicate fern is beloved by houseplant collectors for its perfectly heart-shaped leaves. Deep green and shiny, the 2-4" leaves grow on short fuzzy stems. The dwarf growth habit of the Heart Fern makes it a perfect choice for small spaces. What's more, since the it loves water, this fern is ideal for containers with or without drainage, and can happily be planted in an enclosed terrarium.
• Light: Medium to bright indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1" of soil feels barely moist
• Considerations: Heart Ferns are great for terrariums, because they love to stay moist. Take care not to let the plant dry out!

So far, so good.
I've ordered this plant twice, the first one I thought I'd killed by putting it under too much light, so I ordered another... However, the first plant has recovered and I now have a second one! Once things calm down from shipping, I'll be re-potting them together.
Delighted with my heart fern! Once it recovers from the shock of shipping I expect it to be a wonderful addition.
