Davallia fejeensis | Strange and Beautiful Tropical Vibes


The "Rabbit's Foot Fern" is a popular houseplant known for its unique rhizomes that resemble a rabbit's foot. Its scientific name is Davallia fejeensis. Here's a profile of the Rabbit's Foot Fern and some basic care guidelines:

Plant Profile:

  • Scientific Name: Davallia fejeensis
  • Pot Size: 20mm
  • Common Name: Rabbit's Foot Fern
  • Origin: This fern is native to Fiji and other Pacific islands.

Basic Care Tips:

  1. Light: Rabbit's Foot Ferns prefer bright, indirect light. They can tolerate some morning or evening sun, but avoid exposing them to direct sunlight, which can scorch the fronds.

  2. Temperature: Maintain a consistent temperature range between 60-75°F (15-24°C). Avoid drastic temperature fluctuations and cold drafts.

  3. Humidity: These ferns thrive in high humidity. To increase humidity, mist the fronds regularly, use a humidity tray, or place a small humidifier near the plant.

  4. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch (2.5 cm) of the soil feels slightly dry. Be cautious not to let it dry out completely, as this can stress the plant.

  5. Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix rich in organic matter. A mix designed for ferns or tropical plants is suitable.

  6. Container: Choose a pot with drainage holes to prevent water from accumulating at the bottom. Ensure the pot is not too large, as this fern prefers somewhat crowded roots.

  7. Fertilizing: Feed your Rabbit's Foot Fern with a balanced, diluted liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or stop feeding in fall and winter.

  8. Pruning: Trim away any brown or yellowing fronds to maintain an attractive appearance and encourage new growth.

  9. Propagation: You can propagate Rabbit's Foot Ferns by dividing the rhizomes when repotting. Make sure each division has healthy fronds and roots.

  10. Pests: Keep an eye out for common houseplant pests like spider mites and mealybugs. If you notice any infestations, treat your plant promptly with neem oil or insecticidal soap.

  11. Repotting: Repot your Rabbit's Foot Fern every 2-3 years to refresh the soil and provide it with a slightly larger container. Spring is a good time for repotting.

Rabbit's Foot Ferns are unique and relatively easy to care for, making them a great addition to indoor spaces. With the right care, you can enjoy their lush, green fronds and intriguing rhizomes, which indeed resemble a rabbit's foot.
