Duffi Fern- Nephrolepis cordifolia

Light Requirements

When it comes to light, the Duffi Fern thrives in bright, indirect light. It prefers a spot near a window where it can receive filtered sunlight throughout the day. However, it's important to avoid placing it in direct sunlight as it can scorch the fronds.

Watering Needs

This adorable plant enjoys consistently moist soil, but avoiding overwatering is essential. Water the plant when the top inch of the soil feels slightly dry to the touch. Ensure that the pot has proper drainage to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot. Mist the fronds occasionally to provide the necessary humidity.

Humidity Requirements

Native to tropical regions, the Duffi Fern thrives in high-humidity environments. To create a suitable humidity level, place a tray filled with water near the plant or use a humidifier. Regular misting also helps to maintain the required humidity for this fern.

Soil Requirements

The Duffi Fern prefers well-draining, rich, and slightly acidic soil for optimal growth. A mix of peat moss, perlite, and regular potting soil works well for this plant. Ensure that the pot has drainage holes to prevent waterlogging, which can be detrimental to the fern's health.
