Chain Fern is a species of fern from the Blechnaceae family.

Common Chain Ferns include the Netted Chain Fern and the Giant Chain Fern. Chain Fern’s grow best in fully shaded or lightly shaded areas, but some have adapted to produce in partial shade. It doesn’t grow well in direct sunlight or overly hot regions. The Chain Fern prefers wet soil, such as the soil found in moist woodlands or swamps, and will need to be watered regularly to keep the soil consistently moist. Don’t over water the Chain Fern, but also don’t let the soil become dry between waterings. The Chain Fern has no blooms or flowers, so it doesn’t set seed. Instead of seeds, ferns reproduce through spores usually found under fronds.

It’s grown for its green foliage, and attractive chain patterned fronds, which make an excellent ground cover. Used as a decorative or ornamental plant.

Climate: USDA Zone’s 8 to 10

Mature Height: 1 to 2 feet high with 4 to 8 inch wide fronds

Sun: Fully shaded to lightly shaded areas, can grow in partial shade, no direct sunlight

Soil: Swampy grounds or wet woods, some have adapted to grow in brackish water

Botanical Name: Woodwardia

These plants are native to the United States areas and so grow well. They are grown in hanging baskets in both homes and at work. They can be found in swampy areas but tend to grow smaller than usually.
