Cyrtomium fortunei, commonly known as the Fortune’s Holly Fern, which is a well-known and widely cultivated fern species.

Appearance: Cyrtomium fortunei is an evergreen fern with glossy, leathery fronds. The fronds are typically pinnate, meaning they have multiple leaflets arranged along a central axis. The leaflets are dark green and have serrated edges. The fronds can grow to be around 30 to 90cm in length, depending on the specific variety.

Growth habit: This fern has an upright and clumping growth habit. It produces a rosette of fronds that arise from a central rhizome. Over time, the fern can gradually spread by producing new fronds and rhizomes, forming a dense clump.

Light and temperature: Cyrtomium fortunei thrives in partial shade to full shade conditions. It can tolerate a wide range of temperatures but generally prefers cool to moderate climates.

Watering and humidity: The fern prefers consistently moist but well-draining soil. It should be watered regularly to keep the soil evenly moist, especially during dry periods. However, it is important to avoid waterlogged conditions. It can tolerate average indoor humidity levels but appreciates higher humidity levels.

Soil and fertilisation: Plant Cyrtomium fortunei in well-draining soil that retains some moisture. A mix of peat moss, perlite, and other organic matter can provide the ideal growing conditions. Fertilise the fern with a balanced houseplant fertiliser at a diluted strength every two to four weeks during the growing season (spring to summer) to provide necessary nutrients.

Care tips: Remove any dead or damaged fronds regularly to maintain the fern’s appearance. Mulching around the base of the plant can help retain moisture and regulate soil temperature. Cyrtomium fortunei is generally low-maintenance once established. It can tolerate a range of conditions but prefers a relatively stable environment.
