Is the Fern ‘Jester's Crown’ the right plant for me?

Ferns in general need higher humidity levels in order to be happy, and the ‘Jester's Crown’ is no different. They typically can be found growing in tree canopies, branches, or along the bottom of the forest floor. This close proximity protects them from direct sunlight and allows them to capitalize on the moisture build-up from the ground or trees. 

If you can commit to checking your fern's soil every 5 to 7 days Then you should have no problem encouraging healthy growth.

Pet Friendly: Yes! This plant is safe to have at home. Be mindful that some cats can’t seem to keep from playing with the cascading fronds! 

Location Suggestions: We suggest keeping this plant in areas of your home that have higher humidity. Smaller rooms like an office! Or in the bathroom or kitchen where there is ample moisture in the air! 

    Care Instructions


    Indirect Medium-light - Part Shade


    Keep the soil slightly moist. Water thoroughly and drain any excess water.


    This can be done every 12-18 months. Choose a pot that is 2” larger in diameter than the original pot.


    Use a well-draining, high organic matter soil mix


    Average from 65°F to 75°F


    Follow a monthly fertilizing schedule when the plant is actively growing. In most cases, this is in the spring and summer. Use a balanced fertilizer - this means a ratio of NPK that is all the same. Ex: 10-10-10.
