Our Miniature Tree Fern, or Blechnum gibbum 'Silver Lady', is an elegant fern with attractive feathery fronds that in mature specimens resemble a shuttlecock as they radiate from the centre of the plant. It is a robust species that is quite tolerant of dry atmosphere compared with other indoor fern species.

When mature, the ferns start to form a black, scaly trunk that can eventually reach a height of 90cm. All our potted plants come in compostable coir pots - read more here.
