Fern // Rabbit's foot

Common name: Rabbit's foot

The furry rhizomes growing from the soil beneath the plant are what gives the Rabbit's foot its name. As they grow longer, they even start to resemble spider legs. Don't worry if you start to see yellowing or browning at the very edges of the leaves, this is normal! 

Ferns are among the oldest living plants on earth. There are an estimated 15000 varieties in existence and they don't produce fruits or seeds, instead reproducing by spores. Fern species live in a wide variety of habitats, from remote mountain elevations, to dry desert rock faces, to bodies of water or in open fields.

Moderate to bright, diffused light. Keep them away from direct sun

Ferns prefer humid conditions. Keep the top layer of soil moist, without overwatering. Mist the rhizomes, or feet, as frequently as possible.
