Just hanging out

Named after its furry rhizomes (creeping root stalks) that hang out the pot, Thumper is one of the cutest ferns around. Rabbit's Foot Ferns are also known to be easier and less temperamental than other ferns. However, for best results we recommend keeping it in a more humid environment, or mist regularly with water. Ferns make great bathroom plants, provided they are placed by a window where they can get light.
Comes in a 20cm hanging pot pot. Decorative planters sold separately

Caring for Thumper

Light

Medium to bright indirect light. Rabbit's Foot Ferns are used to living on the forest floor under a canopy of shade. Too much light can brown the leaf tips, so avoid windowsills. Limp pale leaves means it needs more light.

Water & humidity

Water regularly & deeply. Most ferns enjoy moist, but not waterlogged soil. Thumper tolerates lower humidity than most ferns.

Feeding

1-2 times in summer with organic fertiliser. Too much will cause yellow spots on the leaves.

Re-potting

Re-pot if the rhizomes grow too big for the pot. Use a regular indoor potting mix, with added peat if you'd like it to retain more moisture. Never bury the rhizomes under the soil. You can also gently split the rhizome apart, finding its natural divisions to propagate.  

Atrium Top Tip

Mealy bugs and scale can infest this plant, so check for white furry bugs, or brown/black insects attaching themselevs to the leaves. Don't use chemical pesticides which are too strong for the plant. Remove inesctes manually by hand & cut badly infested fronds. Spray with a mixture of 1tsp Mint Oil/Tea Tree oil diluted with 1 Litre of water

Quirky plant fact

The furry rhizomes are used to 'hold on' as the plant grows up trees and over rocks. Native to the Fiji islands.
