Davallia sp - Rabbit's Foot Fern

$ 10.00
Davallia is a fascinating genus of ferns, often called Rabbit's Foot Ferns for their characteristic fuzzy, densely scaled rhizomatous “feet” that extend across soil and over the edges of planters. These fascinating growths eventually sprout charming fiddleheads which unfurl to reveal multi-pinnate fronds. Remarkably fast growing under ideal conditions, this fern thrives with regular maintenance and plenty of humidity. The soft, lacy foliage of the main plant grows in a mounded habit, but it is likely to creep in any direction it’s allowed!


Light: Perfect for medium to bright, indirect light
Water: Keep evenly moist, including rhizomes. Water when the first inch of soil feels dry to the touch
Considerations: Thrives in humid conditions. Shallow root system - avoid deep planters. Pet friendly!


You'll get a healthy Davallia sp that meets our rigorous quality standards in a 4". No two plants are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality; expect this natural variation from the photos. Selections include D. fejeensis, D. tyermanii and D. solida.

Our plants include detailed care instructions as well as our Houseplant Best Practices guide, with information on how to repot, seasonal care and more!

Healthy Fern

This fern baby is perfect and came very quickly once shipped. I received an email to assure me they hadn’t forgotten me but prepping the order is understandably taking longer due to COVID. After ordering this plant I found another Davallia at a local garden center and purchased it even though I knew this was coming. I was thrilled that the fern I received from Pistils was a slightly different variety with lighter green and more feathery leaves. I was going to give one away but ended up keeping both. This is my first purchase with Pisrils but won’t be my last.

We ordered two house plants online to be shipped to our home in Santa Cruz, Ca. The plants arrived in perfect condition with clear care instructions. Couldn't be happier.
