Big hair day

Just like the superstar, Beyonce can be a diva! She’s drop dead gorgeous, but requires a minion to bathe her in a pure aqua mist all day…Maidenhair Ferns do not like the air around them to dry out. Beyonce is mostly found along forest streams where her dainty fronds sashay in the water, absorbing plenty of ambient humidity. She’ll be happiest in your kitchen or bathroom. A self-watering planter or humidifier is highly recommended.

Caring for Beyonce

Light

Medium filtered light is best. In nature, Maidenhair Ferns are usually found in cool river valleys, clinging to the rocks just above the water. They get dappled sunlight that filters through the trees. Too much sun will lead to scorching of the leaves. 


Water & humidity

Water every second or third day in summer to keep moist. In winter let the top layer of soil dry out slightly & reduce watering. Keep the atmosphere humid with a spritzer, humidifier, or place plant by the kitchen or bathroom sink. Read our humidity tips here

Feeding

Fertilise every 1-2 months in summer with a balanced organic fertiliser. All that watering will flush out much-needed nutrients. Reduce feeding in winter.

Re-potting

Re-pot every 1 - 2 years in spring using a good potting mix with added peat moss for water retention, and pumice stones or LECA to help aerate the soil and ensure proper drainage. You can also split the plant into two using a sharp knife through the rhizome.

Atrium Top Tip

You can also increase humidity by placing the pot on a tray of pebbles with water. The water should reach just below the tops of the pebbles so the pot isn't sitting in the water. 

Quirky plant fact

The Maidenhair Fern is found growing in rock crevices and on the side of cliffs. It became a sought-after houseplant in the 1920s and was popular in terrariums and greenhouses.
