Besides the wonderful leaf shape, this fern has another thing that sets it apart from most. Its leaves start as black string-like stems covered in thin hair that eventually protrude to reveal a small leaf. Unlike other ferns that grow from a crozier that uncoils, the leaf continuously grows into a matured form.
Since this plant comes from an environment where trees block and filter the sun rays, it will prefer indirect light or even shade
The Heart fern loves to be inconsistently moist soil (not wet, though). Your plant may need more watering when it is acclimating to its new home.
This plant will curl the leaves (fast) if it is overdue a watering. Avoid reaching this point as it is very dangerous for this plant. It can die off pretty fast. Keep the potting media moist at all times. You can add a layer of sphagnum moss on top of your soil; this will help retain moisture.
