The Maidenhair Fern is often seen as growing best in North America in indoor locations.
However, this fern is capable of growing well and is hardy in zones eight to ten with there being a little impact on the evergreen nature of the fern to low temperatures around 28F. The Maidenhair Fern is a popular option in many yards and gardens where there is some shade offered by the canopy of trees or around rocks that can aid the growth of this shade-loving plant.
The fronds of the Maidenhair Fern are well known for their ability to remain dry in even the dampest conditions because of a form of oil it produces.
This oil has been used in a range of shampoo products because of the ability of the oil to resist dirt and other forms of oil.
Several options can be enjoyed for growing the Maidenhair Fern to reach its optimum growth rate leading to it growing to a height of up to one foot in height. The fern is known in some areas of North America as the five-fingered fern because it resembles hands and fingers that can spread around one foot in width. To maintain the growth of the Maidenhair Fern, it is vital the soil is well-drained and kept moist in a balanced way that allows the fern to grow evenly. Some fronds will turn brown and wilt over time, but if the light and soil of the fern are maintained effectively it will continue to grow efficiently.
