Belonging to the Nephrolepidaceae family, this evergreen perennial is native to tropical regions and thrives in moist, shaded environments. The 'Green Flame' variety is named for its vibrant green foliage, which forms a dense, cascading canopy, resembling a flame. With its low-maintenance nature and tolerance of low light conditions, Fern 'Green Flame' is an excellent choice for adding a touch of elegance and lushness to any garden or interior setting.

🌿 Botanical Name: Nephrolepis exaltata 'Green Flame' (Fern 'Green Flame')

💧 Care Level: Easy. Fern 'Green Flame' is relatively low-maintenance and adapts well to a variety of growing conditions.

📏 Size: Fern 'Green Flame' can reach a height and spread of 1 to 3 feet (30 to 90 cm), although size may vary depending on growing conditions and care.

☀️ Light: Place Fern 'Green Flame' in low to moderate indirect light. It thrives in shaded or partially shaded areas and prefers protection from direct sunlight, especially during the hottest part of the day. If grown indoors, place it near a north- or east-facing window where it can receive filtered sunlight.

💧 Water: Water Fern 'Green Flame' regularly to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water whenever the top inch (2.5 cm) of soil feels dry to the touch, especially during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce watering frequency in the winter months, but do not allow the soil to dry out completely.

💦 Humidity: Fern 'Green Flame' prefers moderate to high humidity levels. Increase humidity by misting the foliage regularly, especially during dry indoor conditions or in arid climates.

🌡️ Temperature: Fern 'Green Flame' prefers temperatures between 60°F to 75°F (15°C to 24°C). It is not frost-tolerant and should be protected from freezing temperatures.

🌱 Soil: Plant Fern 'Green Flame' in well-draining, fertile soil with good moisture retention. A soil mixture rich in organic matter, such as peat moss or compost, is ideal. Ensure the soil is loose and well-aerated to promote healthy root growth.

🌱 Fertilizing: Feed Fern 'Green Flame' with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength once a month during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing in the winter months, as the plant's growth slows down during this time.

🔄 Pruning: Prune Fern 'Green Flame' as needed to maintain its shape and remove any dead, damaged, or yellowing fronds. Use sharp, clean scissors or pruning shears to make clean cuts, and avoid cutting into healthy green tissue.
