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!

Beautiful dark green ferns arrived in perfect condition. I have not had any luck in keeping previous heart ferns alive. These are in a terrarium and are doing well.
Poor heart fern!
I've killed two so far. Can't seem to find the sweet spot for moisture. Certainly not Pistils fault
I am so impressed with the quality of this plant and the learning curve to keep this plant healthy. I know that shopping with Pistils Nursery has always been an excellent experience!!
