Superb plants with a difference! This fern produces furry silvery rhizomes that grow outside of the pot and cascade over the side giving Humata tyermannii its common names: White Rabbit’s Foot, Silver Hare’s Foot and Bears Paw Fern.
Humata tyermannii has fine, delicate fronds of deep green, although new growth may start life with a bronze flush. A lucky fern that looks great in a hanging basket showing off all its glorious features.
Legs for days… This fern takes in moisture and oxygen from the furry rhizomes (legs), so when repotting, make sure not to bury them.
