Get to Know Me
I live up to my name, as a big burly fern with stout fronds. I grow wild in Florida, Louisiana, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, where I'm also known as a broad sword fern. Tough and durable, I do well indoors and also outdoors on shady patios or outdoor living spaces away from direct sunlight. I like moist—not soggy—soil. I'm happy in a large urn, planter, or hanging basket with plenty of room around me to flex my fronds. Just remove any dead fronds to keep me looking fabulous.
