A fascinating and funky fern, less delicate in appearance than many of its contemporaries. The sturdy, elongated, blue-green fronds curl into non-conforming straps, spilling from the plant in a delightfully higgledy-piggledy manner.
A great, undemanding houseplant, providing a perfect background for other foliage plants or to soften a dark corner.
