General Information and Care: Microgramma heterophylla is one of the easiest to grow miniature epiphytic ferns that Glass Box Tropicals offers. It seems to tolerate both extremely wet areas as well as areas that dry slightly. This species has beautiful dark green leaves that have veins that stand out slightly. The leaves are typically anywhere from ½" to ¾". This species also has the typical extremely pubescent rhizome that is very characteristic to many epiphytic ferns. To have the best success with this species, it needs to be mounted.
