Care Guide

Light

To thrive, these ferns need medium or diffused light. Direct, harsh sunlight should be avoided as it can easily burn this plants leaves.

Water and Soil

The green Flame fern should be watered when the top 1.5” or so of soil is dry. This plant is susceptible to overwatering, and care should be taken to ensure the soil does not become soggy or wet. Quick draining yet absorbent soil that is amended with peat moss and perlite works well for these ferns.

Temperature and Humidity

Green Flame Ferns prefer indoor temperatures ranging from 70 to 80 degrees F. This plant does not require the high humidity that most ferns demand, but it can benefit from added humidity, whether through a pebble tray or humidifier.
