    The Tricolor Pteris Fern, also known as Pteris aspericaulis 'Tricolor,' is a beautiful tropical fern that adds a splash of color to any indoor space. Its new foliage emerges red, transitions to bronze, and eventually turns green, creating a stunning visual display. This compact plant is perfect for tabletops and quickly fills out containers. The Tricolor Pteris Fern is an excellent choice for both novice and experienced plant enthusiasts. Its striking appearance and straightforward care requirements make it a delightful addition to any indoor plant collection. Ensure you provide the right conditions for it to thrive, and it will reward you with its vibrant and ever-changing foliage.

    • Provide your Tricolor Pteris Fern with bright, indirect light. It can tolerate medium indirect light, but avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the delicate fronds. The Tricolor Pteris Fern thrives in temperatures between 60-75°F (15-24°C). Avoid exposing it to temperatures below 50°F (10°C) as it can cause damage to the plant.
    • Keep the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry. Ensure the pot has good drainage to prevent waterlogging. High humidity is essential for this fern, so mist the plant regularly or use a humidity tray to maintain moisture in the air around it.
    • Use a well-draining potting mix suitable for houseplants. A mix that retains some moisture but also allows excess water to escape is ideal. Regularly remove any yellowing or dead fronds to encourage new growth and maintain the plant's appearance. Use clean, sharp scissors to avoid spreading any potential diseases.
    • The unique coloration of its fronds adds a decorative touch to any room. Perfect for small spaces, desktops, and indoor gardens. Like many ferns, the Tricolor Pteris helps improve indoor air quality by filtering pollutants.
    • With proper light, watering, and humidity, this fern is relatively easy to care for and maintain. High humidity is crucial for the health of the Tricolor Pteris Fern. In dry environments, mist the plant daily or place it on a humidity tray. Avoid placing the fern near radiators or other sources of dry heat, which can cause the leaf tips to brown.

    "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."
