Adiantum raddianum

Adiantum raddianum, the Delta maidenhair fern, is one of the most popular ferns to grow indoors.[2][3] Its common name comes from its shiny, dark leafstalks that resembles human hair. The triangular fronds are semi-erect in the beginning then droop gracefully as they age and can be up to 12 inches (30 cm) [4] long by 6 inches (15 cm) wide.

This plant has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.[5] , as have the cultivars ‘Brilliantelse’, ‘Fritz Lüthi’ and ‘Kensington Gem’.[6]
