Notes for Identification: This is a unique, airy fern with delicate, pale green horseshoe shaped fronds. They will tolerate some drought but will go dormant under extremely dry conditions. Northern maidenhair (adiantum pendatum) is a deciduous fern with thick, creeping rhizomes, producing lance shaped, broadly ovate to kidney shaped, pinnate, mid-green fronds, to 14" long on glossy, dark brown or black stalks. Indoor care: when grown indoors, grow in one part each of loam, medium grade bark, charcoal, and limestone chips; two parts sharp sand; 3 parts leaf mold. Provide bright, indirect light in summer (such as under benches or along a north wall), bright filtered light in winter. When in growth, apply a half strength balanced liquid fertilizer monthly. Remove old, damaged fronds in the spring.  if moving plants from a humid to a dryer environment, do so gradually to avoid wilting. They make good companion plants for many orchids.  source: various sources including the american horticultural society a to z encyclopedia of garden plants and rodale's illustrated encyclopedia of perennials by ellen phillips and c.
