    Introduce a touch of elegance to your home with the Silver Ribbon Fern (Pteris Cretica). This stunning fern is known for its striking variegated fronds, featuring bold white stripes against lush green leaves. Perfect for adding a tropical feel to any space, this fern is both beautiful and easy to care for, making it an ideal choice for plant enthusiasts of all levels. The Silver Ribbon Fern is not just a visually stunning plant but also a low-maintenance option for those looking to add greenery to their home.

    • The Silver Ribbon Fern boasts delicate, feather-like fronds that can grow up to 20 inches in height. The fronds are characterized by their distinctive white center stripes, which provide a striking contrast to the grey-green leaves.
    • Place your Silver Ribbon Fern in bright, indirect light. It thrives best when positioned near a north or east-facing window. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the delicate fronds. Maintain a temperature range of 65-75°F (18-24°C). Avoid exposing the fern to drafts or sudden temperature changes.
    • Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water your fern once a week, ensuring the pot has good drainage to prevent root rot. The soil should feel like a wrung-out sponge. This fern loves high humidity, ideally between 60-90%. It's perfect for bathrooms or kitchens where the air tends to be more humid. If the air in your home is dry, consider using a humidifier or placing a water tray near the plant.
    • Use a rich, well-draining potting mix. A blend of peat moss and perlite is ideal, as it retains moisture while providing adequate drainage. Regularly trim dead or damaged fronds to maintain the plant's health and appearance. Repot every two years to refresh the soil and give the roots more space to grow.
    • Its unique variegated fronds make it a standout addition to any plant collection, and its ability to thrive in high humidity makes it perfect for bathrooms and kitchens. Moreover, it's an excellent air purifier, contributing to a healthier indoor environment.

    "Came in perfect condition--thank you!"


    "Amazing Plants! I was so happy to see these way larger than the plants pictured because I know how slow most cycads grow."


    "This is the first time I've ever ordered plants online, so I had no idea what to expect. When I saw the description of 'comes in a 4" growers' pot' I figured I'd be getting some fairly small plants--nope! The bamboo palms were fully 2' tall from root to top leaf, and perfectly healthy. All 5 plants were VERY well secured in their box, to the point that the bottom layer was even spray-foamed to the cardboard! I couldn't ask for a better experience and I'm so excited to see these plants grow. Five stars!"


    "Thrilled with my purchase! This seller went above any beyond! The packaging was very careful, the plants are so much bigger than I expected, and I was given more than what was depicted in the item description. 10/10 all round!"


    "This is SO BEAUTIFUL! Packaging was perfect and efficient, plant was in excellent condition. I'm in love with this plant and I will definitely order more."
