Macho fern comes by its name honestly. This brawny fern sports bright green fronds with bold, broad leaves and makes its relatives, Boston fern and Kimberly Queen fern, look little by comparison. Macho fern is ideal for large urns or outdoor planters where it has room to flex its graceful 3- to 4-foot-long fronds.
Best in partial sun to shade. It can NOT tolerate sun the way Kim Queen Ferns do.
