Native to Fiji, New Caledonia and the Pacific Islands, it is a tropical species of fern with an open growth habit. Easy to cultivate with a scaly black trunk and finely textured broad bright green fronds arranged in a symmetrical pattern. Thrives in humid conditions. 

During warm weather water regularly to maintain consistently moist soil. Provide good air circulation and do not overater as this will quickly cause bronze fronds. Reduce watering during the cooler months. Benefits from applications of slow release plant food and half strength foliar based fertilisers.
