Rabbit’s Foot are cool little ferns that are clean and easy to grow. By clean we mean that they don’t continually drop small leaves like other ferns do. When mature the fern grows soft “rabbits feet” around the exterior of the pot.
The Davallia fejeensis, better known as the Rabbits Foot Fern, is one of the most unique and ‘easy to grow’ ferns available. The fronds grow out of a rabbit foot looking rhizome as you can see in the picture below. This fern does not need constant moisture like most fern do and will survive with dry soil for short periods of time. As the Rabbit Foot fern grows, so does the hairy rhizomes, totally engulfing the pot in a few years.
Place your “Rabbit-foot Fern” in bright indirect light or filtered light. Avoid areas of high heat as this will burn the delicate fronds. Keep the soil moist but not soggy. It can be allowed to dry, occasionally feed bi- monthly with a balanced liquid fertilizer such as Peter’s Plant Food. When mature your plant will develop brown circles under the leaves… these are not bugs, they are spores. Spores are basically the same as seeds to other plants. Propagate by dividing the rhizomes.
