For my birthday last year the kids got me a dozen houseplants. Was I happy? Shocked was more like it. I enjoy houseplants but our home is less than 800 square feet and .... well, plants grow and I felt like I had better be successful with this plethora of new plants. I am responsible for the purchase of only three, one of which is the great, great, great grandbaby of the one I got 15 years ago. Here are the ferns purchased by the kids. This kangaroo paw fern has turned into a monster. I will probably divide it this spring and share it. Incredible grow for less than a year. Success This is a heart leafed fern. It hold on barely, but am not sure if it will thrive. It and the next are questionable in my care. This is an eyelash fern. It has died back twice with new growth later. Having a difficult time with this sensitive fern. Have it and the heart fern on humidity mat and grow light now. Jury is out on this one too. Alligator fern is doing well. Love the leaf texture on this one. Now for some ferns I am responsible for getting. Blue star fern is an easy fern to grow for me. I was able to divide this fern with the fuzzy feet. This is a baby stag horn fern. The original plant got to big so I divided it giving away all the big pieces and saving a small start. If only they could all stay this size. I have no idea what this is. It was an impulse buy. It was tiny and cute. Here is my absolute favorite fern. I’ve had it for years dividing it and passing along parts of while repotting the other parts. It’s called a golden button fern. Tough little guy and really needs to be divided. If any Stewbies would like to try starts of the kangaroo paw or gold button ferns and live in the US PM me and I will gladly start some for you and mail the out later this spring. My little plastic bags of a few other plants are already sitting on windowsills waiting for roots to form. I really need to get better at tossing the cuttings in the garbage.
