Sharon | Green Fern | Didymochlaena Fern


Sharon is an adorable baby green fern.  With her red stalks and gorgeous emerald leaves, she's a great addition to any shelf or desk.


If you're a serial over-waterer, Sharon is the plant for you as she absolutely loves it!  Used to living on the floor of the rainforest, she loves moist soil and a misty, humid environment.  She's also pretty easy going when it comes to light.  Although she thrives in bright, indirect light - she can tolerate shadier spots (but never no natural light - all plants need that!)



Her plastic growing pot is 9cm and she will look great in one of our 10cm or 11cm decorative pots.


The good news for pet owners is that the Green Fern is non-toxic to pets!  Just keep out of reach if you have any fluffy friends who might be partial to a nibble.



All of the houseplants in my shop are named after an inspiring woman. This time, Sharon Horgan, comedian, writer and producer.  I've laughed until I cried watching her comedies, Catastophe and Pulling (if you've not watched, you have to!).  She also recently won Stylists 'Woman of the Year' award in 2020, woop!


Native to tropical rainforests in Central & South America, also found in Africa and the Carribean, ferns are a beautiful addition to any room.


They're pretty easy to care for - they love a humid, cool environment (just like where they grow, on the forest floor) so make a great bathroom buddy.  They love indirect bright light but can handle a little more shade too.  Just ensure you water as soon as the top couple of inches of soil start getting dry to maintain the moistness of the soil.  She also loves a good misting with a water spray to keep moist and increase humidity.


They really don't like being touched (it can turn their fronds brown!) so pop her in a place where she can be left alone to grow and she won't get brushed past too much.


Each plant comes with a beautiful printed care card so you'll never be stumped for how to look after it!
