This pic doesn't do this huge #swordfern justice. I'm hoping with it being so far in the ground, shelter of the trees,and mulching it really well it will return next yr. It was just so big I had no place inside to keep him. #bossfern #machofern #fern #nephrolepis #lomariopsidaceae #tropical #houseplant #hostplant
Oh,I'm so hoping it does. This one is huge. If it makes it I surely will be taking root cuttings and putting it under my tree in the front where I placed my glider. It's roots were a huge ball and I know hubs dug almost 3ft square hole to put it in...lol! @columbiariver
I had never seen one here until the fire. We were frantically packing up to evacuate about 2 a.m. One of these flew in the house. It was smokey and so hot. It flew in to get near the light. It vanished quick as it came in. Poor thing was running from the fire. Nightmare! Hope he went on to make more of himself 🌿👌
The #foliage 🌿on the #machofern is so lush right now. Sure,wish it was a perrenial here. But,I've got him in the ground almost 3ft. I know U wouldn't think it would be but, He's A #bossfern and holds a ton of root! #swordfern #nephrolepis
Hubby got the #swordfern in the ground. He had to dig to China to make a hole big enough..lol💕 Now I know why it's also called, #bossfer bwahaha!! It's a #annualinzone7 but I'm hoping putting it in the ground and protecting with mulch it will want to come back in it's Favorite spot. I took what #creepingjenny (in bottom right) I had to cut off mother plant and just sat it in all corners..maybe it will take root.
I gave my #swordfern a trim. 🤔With that in mind I had a thought of starting a #fern in the ground,So I started the process...Will show how😎 #shadeloving #machofern #houseplant #tropical #annualinzone7 #bossfern
Some also call it, #machofern ,but is a wonderful shade plant. It will take Part Sun/Part Shade. Now thoughts are in for another garden....Oh Yeah...hehe! 😊 #fern #shadeloving #swordfern #machofern #houseplant #tropicalplant #bossfern #nephrolepis
