GROWING FLUFFY RUFFLE FERN IN MY GARDEN.

This is another type of fern growing in my garden. This fern has been part of my garden for many years.
This is one of the Fluffy Ruffles fern.
Its scientific name is Nephrolepis Exaltata.

It has a ruffled appearance.

This fern is suitable as an indoor plant or growing in hanging pots/baskets.

I placed the plant under the porch, enjoying indirect sunlight.

This fern grows well in moist garden soil with good water drainage.

If the soil is dry, it will be pale green. Once the plant is watered, it will be restored to healthy green.

The leaves can grow up to 1.5 to almost 2 feet long.

The leaflets grow alternately along the leaf stems in straight rows.

Curled or ruffled leaflets.

Compacted leaflets.

The thin and long green projections will grow and multiply into new fern plants once it finds and set roots into the soil.

This fern is a slow growing and an evergreen plant.

"O Ephraim! Stay away from idols!

I am living and strong! I look after you and care for you.

I am like an evergreen tree,

yielding my fruit to you throughout the year.

My mercies never fail."

(Hosea 14:8, The Living Bible-TLB)

  2. Beautiful ferns. I like how the leaves grow orderly in 2nd last pix and the stem looks hard. I think they need trimming every now & then.

  14. Nancy, this fern is very pretty and decorative. I have the common ones that keep growing in my garden. The look nice when they are small bit not so when they get big. I have to constantly pull them out.
