Cyrtomium fortunei - Fortune's Holly Fern
Cyrtomium fortunei has deep green, stiff fronds that look like holly leaves. Native to Western Asia, this evergreen fern is cold hardy down to 0F, but we've found it's perfectly happy as a houseplant. It grows into a dense clump of arching fronds, and contrasts great against large, smooth aroid leaves. While Boston Ferns or Maidenhair Ferns are tricky to keep happy, Cyrtomium fortunei's thick leaves make it a tolerant, reliable houseplant.
• Light: Medium to bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1" of soil feels barely moist. Don't let fully dry out. During summertime, you will need to water this fern more often.
• Considerations: These ferns are easy to grow and hard to kill when given bright light and regular water.
