Mother Fern

Asplenium 'Parvati'

Regular price £29.00 £0.00

The Mother Fern is a unique plant that has lovely thick, dark green fronds. It is one of the only ferns on Earth that produces 'plant babies' on its leaves, hence its common name Mother Fern.  

The Asplenium 'Parvati' makes great hanging plants and ours comes with its own detachable hanger so you can have yours cascading from a hook, railing, or do without the hanger entirely and let it trail down a bookcase.

Growing pot size: 17cm plus hanging hook. We advise buying a larger decorative pot size as the lip of the hanging pot makes it slightly bigger

Overall plant height including growing pot: 30-40cm
