It seems to me, that this particular type of Fern is rather picky about its growing conditions. What I can tell you is that this Fern likes its' clay pot to be kept cool durning the hotter parts of the year. I have not been very successful in growing it under the shade of a Magnolia Tree. It seems to like living under the grow-lights, inside our home.
