Growing tips:

- Pteris can be treated and grown as other ferns.
Requires humid conditions and porous media with a lot of organic matter. Well decomposed leaf mould is very good. Its growth slows down during the cooler winter months. In cases of very cold and dry winters it will go into dormancy. Will sprout back when the weather is favourable. Ideal plant for individual pot grown specimens. Temperature tolerance: 16 deg C to 36 deg C
