  • Pteris Albo Fern, also known as the Silver Ribbon Fern, is a beautiful and easy-to-care-for fern that is native to the tropical rainforests of Asia and Africa. Pteris genus is a diverse group of fern species. Instead of the typical fern shape, they often have flat, feathery leaves that bring a fun twist on what a fern can be!

    Pteris Albo Fern is a variegated Pteris Fern originates from tropical and subtropical regions around the world. Its name "Albo" is derived from the Latin word "albus," meaning "white," a reference to the lovely white variegation on its leaves. The leaves have alternating bands of light and dark green, combined with the occasional creamy white streaks. They grow in a symmetrical habit, forming an interesting rosette shape.

    Ferns are one of the best houseplants because they are very easy to care for, pet-friendly, and very tolerant of low-light environments. As a fern, Pteris Albo is also an effective air-purifying plant, contributing to cleaner indoor air and improving our overall health condition.

  • This fern is very versatile when it comes to lighting. Unlike many tropical plants that require many hours of bright light, ferns can grow in rooms with limited lighting. However, bright, indirect light away from the scorching sun is ideal for this plant and can keep it healthy and vibrant.

    Keep the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Water when the top inch of the soil feels dry. Make sure the pot has good drainage to avoid overwatering.

    Pteris Albo thrives in a well-draining, slightly acidic potting mix. You can use a commercially available potting mix designed for ferns or combine potting soil with peat moss, perlite, coarse sand, and some compost or organic matter.

    Maintain a comfortable room temperature, around 65-75°F. Avoid exposing your fern to drafts or extreme temperature fluctuations. Ferns love humidity and grow the best with some extra moisture. If your room’s humidity level is below 50%, you can use a humidifier or bring your fern to a humid place like the bathroom or kitchen.

    Feed your Pteris Albo with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).

    Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging:

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
