The Poly Fern, otherwise known as Shield Fern, is a compact plant that is just as lovely in a pot as it is for landscaping. Poly ferns do best in moist. They don't like direct sunlight, so it is best to plant them in an area where the light is filtered. Poly ferns grow at different rates depending on conditions. Indoors or in less than ideal situations, they are a moderately growing plant. Under ideal conditions, poly ferns can grow quite quickly. Due to its small size and soft, feather-like leaves, Poly Ferns are an ideal choice for indoor plants and edging gardens and paths. When kept as an indoor plant, this fern provides air filtration, helpful in the easing of allergies and asthma symptoms. Because it is evergreen, this plant will stay green all year when planted in southern regions with mild winters. The Poly Fern does not do well in colder environments that receive a lot of snow. The feathery leaves are soft to the touch and a dark green in color, making this plant a striking addition to the shady portions of your garden. When you plant Poly Fern in a area that receives plenty of water but indirect sunlight, it will flourish and grow quite quickly. Make sure the soil stays moist, but do not overwater as this can cause plant roots to rot. In the home, this plant prefers a window with indirect sunlight and generally does very well in bathrooms where steamy conditions often exist. When you order a Poly Fern, it will ship to you in bare root condition, allowing for the best possible planting.
