Rabbit Foot Fern (Davallia fejeensis) - 4 inch pot
Although most types of ferns require high humidity, Rabbit Foot Fern is much easier to please as indoor ferns. House plants will thrive with indirect light and average room temperatures.
Elegant, lacy fronds create a lush mound of evergreen foliage. The main attraction of this plant, however, are the furry rhizomes that hang over the side of the container. These light-brown, creeping rhizomes are covered with hairs that look like a rabbit's foot.
It's a good idea to put the plant in a hanging basket because they can grow up to 2 ft (60 cm) long. And because you want to show them off, don't you?
Those furry rhizomes are more than eye-catching -- they take up moisture. Mist them every day -- or as needed -- with tepid water to prevent them from drying out.
This Pacific island native tends to lose some of its leaflets in winter. This is normal, and don't worry...this vigorous plant will replace them. Raising the humidity can help.
Not winter hardy!
