Rumohra adiantiformis is an evergreen herbaceous fern species growing up to 2’ – 4’ feet depending on the growing conditions.
The dark green-colored, lacy-looking, finely-cut, glossy, and triangular-shaped leaves or fronds give the plant a tropical appearance.
A feature of the leatherleaf fern distinguishing it from most other fern species is it does not have separate reproductive fronds.
Instead, the reproductive clusters, called sori “fruit dots”, are located on the underside of the dark green leaflets.
Adiantiformis prefers a partial shade position with filtered sunlight.
While the plant can survive in full shade, it cannot tolerate full sun and direct sunlight, so be careful not to expose your plant to full and direct sun.
