Bio Dude Substrates: TerraFlora, TerraFauna, TerraFirma

Soil Depth: All soil depths with proper drainage.

Lighting: Low to medium. Placement under a heating or basking light may cause leaves to burn.

Mature Plant Size & Root System: A variety of the Boston ferns, these easy-to-grow and hardy plants have “ruffled” fronds that can grow up to 6 inches wide and reach several feet tall. Though the root system can be shallow, it can also grow throughout the terrarium substrate if not pruned back.

Edible & Side Effects if Ingested: Non-Toxic if consumed, though these are typically used for ornamental, not edible, purposes.
