It originated from Australia and it is easy to grow indoors and out. It performs well in the sun and the shade. They are fast-growing, full, and beautiful! They thrive in containers and make for an interesting hanging basket. Kimberly Queen Ferns offer the added benefit of reducing indoor air pollution and toxins in your home like formaldehyde.
GROWING KIMBERLY QUEEN FERNS INDOORS
Choose a fantastic container and spruce up your indoor space! Bring the vibrance of nature home when you decorate with Kimberly Queen Fern plants. When grown indoors, make sure your plant receives medium light throughout the day. Place in front of a north facing window for example to provide your plant with enough light to grow well, but not so much that the leaves lose their vibrant green color.
Watering is important when taking care of your Kimberly Queen Ferns indoors. Allow the top few inches or 25% of your potting soil to dry out before watering again. The leaves may even turn a pale green color when your plant is thirsty. When the fronds turn crispy or brown, that means you could be overwatering. Pick up a Rapidtest Digital Moisturemeter at our store nearest you! Know exactly how much water your plant needs and help making watering even easier.
Ferns love humidity. That’s why they thrive in homes or offices. They like temperatures around 60-70 degrees and need to be kept away from fireplaces and heaters.

Watering is important no matter where it is planted. Whether in the ground or in a container, Kimberly Queen Ferns need regular moisture when planted outdoors. Do not let the soil dry out and you should water when the soil’s surface feels slightly dry to the touch. Adequate moisture is important, especially during the plant’s first growing season. Be mindful that container gardens and hanging baskets can require more frequent waterings, especially if your plant is receiving longer periods of sunlight. Your plant needs moisture to develop a widely growing and strong root system for a long lifespan and beauty you can enjoy for years to come.
