Rabbits Foot Fern
Details: Rabbits Foot Fern is a houseplant named for the furry rhizomes that form and grow above the soil and produce the delicate-looking lacy fronds. In general, this fern likes to stay moist, but does not like to sit in water. It does best in low to bright indirect light.
Light Requirement for Rabbits foot fern: A Rabbit’s Foot Fern does well in the medium to indirect bright light light provided by a north or east- facing window. Avoid south & west facing windows because the intense sun will burn the fronds and the heat will cause the soil to dry out too quickly.
Watering your rabbits foot fern: This particular fern likes to be a little drier than most other indoor ferns. Allow the top 25% of the soil to dry out before watering.
Fertilizing Your Rabbits Foot Fern: Fertilize every 2 weeks in the spring, summer & fall with a basic houseplant food at 1/2 the recommended strength. If the plant is not producing new fronds, do not feed it. Too much fertilizer burns the edges of the fronds.
Rabbit’s Foot Fern, originally from Fiji, is a lovely compact plant that never makes a mess like other ferns. It has thin lacy medium green fronds that have an almost bluish tinge. As a Rabbit’s Foot Fern matures it develops furry creeping rhizomes (fleshy roots) that grow on the surface of the soil and cling to the edges of the pot. These rhizomes are covered in brown hairy looking scales that make them look like the feet of a Rabbit. This upright airy fern, about 16”-18” tall and 18”-20” wide makes a unique and beautiful houseplant.
