Adiantum peruvianum, Giant Maidenhair (0.4m)
The Maidenhair genus of ferns, which originated in the Brazilian tropics, contains almost 200 different species and can now be found growing in temperate climates throughout the world.
A Maidenhair Fern prefers bright indirect sunlight but will even grow slowly in medium light. It can handle some early morning sun, however intense sun burns the fronds. Keep the soil moist but not soggy; never allow the soil to totally dry out. If the soil is too wet, a Maidenhair Fern develops root rot and fungal diseases.
Maidenhair Ferns must have consistent temperatures. They can handle warmth or cold, but prefer warm areas. Never place a Maidenhair Fern where the temperature fluctuates.

Soil for Potted Plants
Plants should be grown in fertilised potting mix. Make or buy a fertilised mix which consist of coco peat moss or coconut fiber (coir), vermiculite or perlite, compost and other ingredients. A lightweight soil for potted plants needs to provide good drainage, hold moisture, and give roots room to grow.
All plants depend on light for their survival, and making sure your potted plants get the right amount of light is key to keeping them happy. For both indoor and outdoor containers, group plants with similar light requirements. Don't mix shade lovers with sun lovers in a single pot; one or both of them will be unhappy, depending on where you place the pot.
