Can anyone tell me what this fern is called. It is the only thing I have been able to get to live in the pots by my front door because of the shade. Should I leave them out all winter? Are they hardy? Won't the pots freeze and bust if I water them? Can I bring them in to overwinter in the house?
Any information or suggestions will be gratefully received.
It is an indoor fern and will not take freezing weather. My mind is rememebering it something like pteris?? MY mind is on-overload this week; but I do know that one of our usual nurseries,has it in the plant area where you can put together a pot of different greens (like pothos, peace lily for a gift planter)
Many table ferns are so similar, one needs to observe first hand for positive id. Try these:Pteris cretica 'Albo-lineata'; Pteris quadriaurita 'Argyraea'; Pteris ensiformis 'Victoriae'; Pteris cretica 'Mayii'.
Oh, I guess that didn't make much sense. I looked them up in a little booklet I have about ferns, but assumed everybody but me would know of a website for ferns. Sorry, I guess that didn't help you at all. I'll cross my fingers someone knows of a site, and will try to do a search later tonight.
