Christmas Ferns offer a richly green color and an airy texture that looks great in any arrangement

Ferns: What Makes them Special, The Story of the Christmas Fern

 

 Christmas for many people is about the joy of exchanging gifts, decorating the tree, and opening presents. But the holiday wouldn't be complete without a few Christmas ferns. The Christmas fern is one of the many plants that make up the Christmas tradition. Ferns need no sunlight but grow best in moist, cool places below cabinets or between floorboards. They offer a richly green color and an airy texture that looks great in any arrangement. Here are a few fascinating facts about these plants about why we love them so much!

 

 

 Introduction to the Christmas Fern

 The Christmas fern looks like a miniature Christmas tree. They have a branched and leafy crown covered with soft green fronds. The fronds are densely packed together on the top of the plant, with similar leaves at the base. When it comes to the Christmas ferns' structure, they are made up of two layers: a coenosteum and an epidermis.

 

 Coenosteum: At the very top layer is the coenosteum which is filled with starch granules that give shape and definition to the fronds of each fern.

 

 Epidermis: The epidermis covers all other parts of the plant's body but does not form any pinnules or leaves as it needs light for photosynthesis.

 

 Christmas Ferns do not need sunlight to grow, usually growing in damp environments

 

 How do they grow?

 The Christmas fern is an epiphyte, meaning that it can grow in various places such as trees, walls, and rocks. They do not need sunlight to grow, usually growing in damp environments. That makes them perfect for keeping inside during the winter months. When they grow, they have a reddish-pink coloration on their leaves which changes to green the next day.

 

 

 Where do they come from?

 Ferns are generally thought to be native to the Appalachian Mountains, but there is evidence that they were in China as early as 7000 BC. The Christmas fern was introduced to Europe about 100 years ago and was the first fern to be imported into America.

 

 

 Conclusion

 The Christmas Fern is a plant with a fascinating story. Since the beginning of time, it's been around, but it was only discovered to be a Christmas plant in the late 1800s. They are rare, and they are beautiful. So, what makes the Christmas Fern so unique that you should grow? Read on to find out!
