Nephrolepis exaltata (Polypodiaceae Family)
Simply pinnate with rather stiff, fresh green fronds. Length is 12-16 inches wide.
Spring through Fall
Should be packaged flatly with leaves intact. Stems should be stiff.
Care and Handling
Remove bundle ties and slant cut one inch from stems base. If you need to remove some of lower leaves they can be stripped easily. Place stems in 2-3 inches of water. Do not add any floral preservative to water. Support long foliage with a tall container. Store in a cooler at 36 degrees F.
Great foliage for tropical designs and bouquets. Gives vertical accent to designs.
