Got mine as two tiny little shoots last year. Kept potting them up and now they are in a 14 in, wire basket and their 'feet" hang over the edge. They grow in best in high dappled shade or light shade. I found either in a bit of sun or deep shade they didn't do as well.
Allow to dry out between waterings, every once in a while I'll feed with fish emulsion.

One of the easiest ferns to grow outdoors,That is the only way I have kept them. Shade, water, and protection from the elements are all they ask.I have even planted them on rotting logs and watched them slowly creep over the logs with furry feet.

I grow this plant indoors only. It stays in a north facing window and does very well. Water about once per week. I have had mine for approximately 5 years. Started new plants off of the rhizomes....takes several weeks for the new plants to take off.
I grow about twelve of these beautifull ferns in the Central Valley of California. The hot Summers (over 100degrees) are hard on them, but hey make it through. They have to be shaded from the full summer sun. They are the hardiest of ferns that I grow.

A great unique plant. Grows well in fluorescent light. Lives inside, 24 hour shop with light on most of the time. It's flourished in the 4 years since I was given several "legs" to grow. I tried sticking directly into dirt and into water for a few weeks first - both work well. Water every week or two. Sometimes leave dry up and fall off, but grow back from another "knuckle".

Interesting fern with hairy type rhizomes. These tropical ferns make excellant baskets for patios or under trees in summmer. Its best to use wire baskets lined with moss. In time, the rhizomes will cling to the shape of the basket covering the whole thing.
