I grew this fern for many years by bringing it inside for the winter and in a shady site in the garden in the summer. It likes high humidity as most of its nutrients are obtained from the moisture in the air. In the winter it was inside by the back door and totally shaded. The central heating eventually dried it out and over several months of neglect it died. Whilst I attended to its needs for moisture it trived to give this beautiful display.
