The Macho Fern is larger than its relatives the Boston Fern and Kimberly Queen, hence its name! This fern is easy to grow. It has graceful, arching, bold green fronds. This plant is perfect for the indoors or in a shady outdoor location such as a shaded patio or front porch!
Macho Ferns grow best with partial shade or shaded outdoors, if the plant is indoors use low to bright light. If possible, keep your plant away from drying winds. For watering, water when the top inch of the soil feels dry to the touch. Keep your fern moist, not wet. It may need water every day in summer.
About Our Plants
Our soil is custom blended and contains only the highest quality Canadian peat. We don’t try to cut cost with cheaper mixes. Additionally, all of our plants are grown with 100 to 180 day time release fertilizer so you won’t be running out of it just when the plants arrive. This is not the case with the quick release 30 day fertilizers that many other companies tend to use.
We do approximately 90% of our own liners. Since the cost is relatively inexpensive, we put twice as many liners in each container for many of the varieties. Accordingly, this makes for a much fuller plant.
All of our plants are given more than adequate spacing. For instance, most of the flowering bushes and trellis plants have 4 square feet of spacing. The Boston fern hanging baskets, for example, have 6 square feet. This allows our plants to grow as big and full as possible.
