Frosty Ferns

Frosty Fern

A pretty holiday plant!

The Frosty fern (Selaginella kraussiana) isn't a real fern but actually a variety of moss. It behaves like a fern in that it likes a good dose of humidity and requires little light. However, as an indoor plant, it likes bright but indirect light. It gets its name from the distinctive white color of its new growth... giving it a frosty appearance... a pretty plant for the holiday home.

*The Frosty fern is not poisonous for kids, dogs or cats.

Fertilizing: Use a liquid 10-10-10 or 12-12-12 houseplant fertilizer diluted at a rate of 1/4 teaspoon per 1 quart of water, or one-fourth of the rate recommended on the label.
