The Christmas Ferns came packaged and labeled. I acclimated them wrapping in damp dish towel. Planted some in the ground, gave two to neighbor and put one in a pot on the porch. All are growing at about the same rate. I knew they were very fresh and healthy when they arrived with bonus live earthworm!
My favorite fern by far! Gorgeous!
