This product is unavailable

The Austral Gems waxy leaves make it a hardier plant than most soft, thin leaved ferns. This is a perfect fern for beginners, or for those who don’t like fussy houseplants. This fern is native to Australia. Although many ferns are non-toxic and therefore pet safe, the Austral Gem is a toxic hybrid and it is not pet safe.

Care Guide


The Austral Gem fern will do best in a medium to bright indirect light exposure. This fern should be kept out of harsh, direct sunlight, which can burn its fronds.

Water and Soil

The Austral Gem fern will prefer to stay evenly moist, allowing only the top inch or two of soil to dry between waterings. A well draining soil is essential, and a blend of peat moss and perlite can help provide the right mix between absorbency and drainage.

Temperature and Humidity

Austral Gem ferns typically prefer household temperatures between 65 and 80 degrees F. Ferns love humidity, and you can provide your Austral Gem with extra humidity through a pebble tray, humidifier, or misting.
