The Brake Fern originates from the southern Mediterranean and prefers moderate to bright indirect sunlight. It is an ideal plant for the indoors as it thrives in fluorescent light conditions and requires little watering.

Beautiful green fronds add an exciting pop of color and texture to the home. The Brake Fern grows slowly and, unlike other varieties, rarely needs to be divided. It prefers moist air, and its fronds can be pruned at the base to leave room for new growth. Will survive as a container or landscape plant in warmer climates.
