Native to Asia. This unique fern has heart shaped leaves on dark, almost black stems. This fern stays on the small size, less than 12",  and can handle low to moderate light conditions. It can also be grown epiphytically or in soil.  The Heart Leaf Fern prefers to be in a room that is kept above 60°F and has a good amount of humidity. Set in a tray of pebbles under the pot and fill with water to increase humidity around the plant if needed. This unusual fern would make a great houseplant to have on a coffee table or window shelf and would certainly spark conversation.
