This fern naturally occurs in humid forests and swamps in South America, Central America, Mexico, Africa, West Indies, Polynesia and Florida! It grows best in moist,  shady, humid conditions in warm climates. Protect from freezing, and do not overwater. Keeping the soil evenly moist, not soggy wet, is important. It will grow mounted and will need extra watering/misting if desired to do so. Make sure the soil is well draining, it will keep the plant from root rot.
