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!

My 6" Heart Fern arrived in pristine condition. Only a tablespoon of dirt was loose. I was ecstatic then and a couple hours later it perked up almost two inches making me all the more happy. It has a happy place now with full light through a bay window, right by my desk where I can appreciate it all day long. Thank you!
I love my heart fern. I was a bit worried because the vines looked like they were a bit wilted when it got here but it's perked up and looks great!
My plants arrived within several days of my order and they looked very healthy! I am very pleased with my purchase and will order from this company again.
