A Lava Rock Fern in front of Urban Tropicana’s store in Chiswick, London A Lava Rock Fern in front of Urban Tropicana’s store in Chiswick, London

Details

This fern has been specially grown on lava and is not only easy to look after but looks great.

The fern’s roots have grown around the lava, a porous stone. As the lava absorbs water from the tray, the plant takes all the water it needs from the stone. Try to keep the tray about three-quarters full.


Light:

Avoid placing the plant in direct sunlight as this will quickly deplete the store of water.

Water:

It is vital to keep the tray three-quarters full of water at all times or the plant will be unlikely to survive. The plant takes up water via capillary action, with the porous rock soaking up moisture which is then absorbed by the plant’s roots. Ideally use only filtered or rain water to prevent limescale turning the rock white. Mist the leaves regularly with water to improve the humidity around the plant

Toxic

Pot size: 17cm

Went to Urban Tropicana for the first
time on Friday 04/02/2022 after following their Instagram and Facebook page for a while. Seeing posts of their beautiful plants made me want to visit. I wasn’t disappointed, they have a great array of amazing plants at great prices. Staff were super welcoming and friendly straight away. Giving advice and tips on what would work best in my home with the light it gets, and also on how to care for the plants I purchased from them.I will definitely be going back again for more
plants to fill my home. I highly recommend them. 🌱🌴🌿  🌵
