Supplied in a standard nursery pot. You can repot the plant into a larger planter using humus-rich potting compost. Or stand the pot as it is in an attractive planter. If you leave it in the same pot, place it on a saucer. Water is allowed to remain temporarily in the saucer and only water again after it has evaporated or been absorbed. Keep the soil moist.
Choose a warm place for your Humata tyermannii, bright but sheltered from the sun and preferably not below 15 degrees Celsius. The plant will require less water in cooler surroundings.
White Paw Fern (Humata tyermannii) is a plant native to tropical forests that does not like direct sun, light to full shade is ideal. It likes to be kept humid, do not let the soil dry out and water at least once a week - water on the potting soil not on the leaves.
This plant does not like too strong a fertiliser, so we recommend halving the dosage suggested on the packaging of fertiliser for green plants.
Water less in the winter keeping the plant slightly drier. Wait until spring to resume watering and feeding.
