Plant Features

Rita's Gold Fern is a stunning variety of the Boston fern known for its vibrant chartreuse-colored fronds that add a touch of elegance to any indoor space. This compact fern boasts a graceful, arching habit, with its delicate fronds cascading downwards in a mesmerizing display. It thrives in humid environments and prefers indirect or filtered sunlight, making it an ideal choice for living rooms, bathrooms, and offices.

For troubleshooting, dry air or underwatering can cause brown tips on the fronds. Mist the plant regularly and increase watering frequency if necessary. Yellowing fronds are a sign of overwatering or poor drainage. Allow the soil to dry out slightly between waterings and ensure the pot has adequate drainage holes. Insufficient light can cause the fronds to lose their vibrant color. Move the plant to a location with brighter indirect light. Keep an eye out for common fern pests like spider mites and scale insects. If detected, treat the plant with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

Golden Fern Order

Difficult fern to find. Although shipment was delayed, plant arrived in excellent condition. Was well packaged, and a quart size as advertised. I was so impressed, I tried to order some more, only to find them sold out.
