Davallia sp - Rabbit's Foot Fern

$ 12.00
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 your choice of a 4" or 6" nursery pot. 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!

Cute and healthy!

My little fern arrived a few days ago. It was securely packaged with minimal plastic (thanks!) and seems to have made the trip across country quite well (I live in NYC). Its a nice sized, healthy specimen and is settling into my apartment happily.

Rabbit Foot Fern

I love my rabbit foot fern. The packaging was like opening a gift to myself. I am now getting ready to repot and will look to purchase my pot from PISTILS. Thanks so much for this lovely plant!!

This is such a lovely fern! I quickly purchased another after I (stupidly) left the first one unprotected, allowing a certain someone who thought it was a type of cat grass to mow it down. Ugh! So, now I have two ferns planted together, the newer one camouflaging the nibbled-on one as she recovers. Both plants were received in pristine condition.
