Shipping Notes: 

As a good practice, Josh's Frogs recommends washing all plants thoroughly removing as much soil as possible with dechlorinated water before placing them in their final home. Live plants may vary in color, size, and appearance.

Beautiful variegation!

This fern is just gorgeous!! It's quite hearty and grows quickly. It arrived in great condition and has been sprouting new fronds almost daily! Awesome little fern. Perfect for someone who needs a "starter fern".

Healthy and beautiful

This was the largest and most lush of my terrarium plants that I put in, and it has done very well so far. It’s not the smallest terrarium, so if you’re considering it and you’re not building a very large Terrarium then perhaps skip this plant, but it has been great background foliage that is taller than my other plants and it has done just as well as all my others. Just as the description says, you will need to trim this one back to keep it from overcrowding other plants.

Great

The plant was packaged really well and had zero damage from shipping. It is a beautiful plant, but be careful not to miss a watering!
