Doryopteris pedata - Digit Fern

$ 14.00

Doryopteris pedata is an unusual mounding fern with highly furcated fertile fronds. Like its more obviously dimorphic relative the Antenna Fern, Doryopteris pedata has two visually different leaf shapes. The sterile fronds look vaguely like maple leaves, and the fertile fronds have many splits, reminiscient of fingers. These "fingers" give the plant its common name--the Digit Fern.

Plant Care

 Light: Medium to bright indirect light. Protect from direct sun.
• Water: Water when the top 1" of soil feels barely moist. Don't let dry out.
• Considerations: These ferns are great for terrariums, because they love to stay moist.

What to Expect

You'll get a healthy Doryopteris pedata that meets our rigorous quality standards in a 4.5" nursery pot. These plants are just starting to mature, so your plant may or may not have "digit" fronds upon arrival. But given proper care, the plant will explode with growth. No two plants are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality; expect this natural variation from the photos.

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

We include shipping box warmers at no charge as needed. Got questions? Check out our FAQ!

Love my new Fern!

Lovely Fern plant! I have a dim area - it gets light but not direct sun - and I wanted a fern. But not a Boston Fern - I wanted something different. This Digit Fern is just right! And it came extremely well packed - no damage to anything at all! Thank you!

Bought Two

Bought my first one, then they sold out. These little guys are so perfect. They are lush and full and they arrive, as always, in perfect condition. Love them.
