Korean rock fern is a charming, small, evergreen fern with a neat appearance. Each frond is delicately laced with black veins that accentuate its rich, dark green leaves. It is a slow grower, only reaching about 12 inches tall and gradually forming a small clump. The fronds are held very upright and are finely divided, creating an eye-catching yet refined look.

Light: Avoid full sun. Does best with bright, diffuse light to partial shade 

Water: Water: Ferns despise drying out. Only allow the top 1/4 inch of the top soil to dry. Water little, but frequent around every 4 to 5 days to top up moisture levels. Doing a top up watering technique you should not have the water coming through the bottom or this can lead to overwatering. However if you have let the fern dry out around 1/2 then do a thorough watering. It is a bit risky to let then dry out too much. Humidifiers help as well as grouping plants to raise the humidity in immediate area.

NOTE: Ferns enjoy humidity. Consider placing the fern on a pebble tray with water, near a humidifier, or misting it regularly.
