Bladder Fern Care
Bulblet Bladder fern (Cystopteris bulbifera) is a beautiful rock-loving fern that has a length of 48 inches. It is slim, light green and reclining plant found in limestone or sandstone foundations. The fern got its name from the tiny green structures that look like a bladder that is located beneath the leaves. The structures are potential reproductive edifices that will ultimately fall off and create fresh bladder ferns. Bladder ferns are found in moderate areas around the world and are a very diverse genus with every species appearing to be different, especially when in harsh environments. The harsh environments make the ferns stay small and stunted.
Bladders ferns grow spores that later develop into bulblets; however, they also breed semi-vegetatively. The bulblets are sunny green semi-silky and begin out as miniature balls and then grow into pre- foliage shaped like kidneys. They are situated beneath the leaves on the stem which splits the leaflets or pinnae. If you are looking to prepare a suitable growing condition for the Bublet bladder fern, burry many limestone wastes in almost neutral, humus-rich soil in humid, low and deeply shaded areas. Bladder ferns can also flourish in loam, sandy and clay soil but needs good drainage. They can also grow in soils with any pH levels.
If put in a condition that it favors, the Bladder fern needs little maintenance plant that does well in an average light condition. The leaves always start to dry up when the fall begins, and the cold temperature starts. Always leave the dead foliage on the fern to create a protecting cover over the core; you can do this over winter. During the late winter, you can now remove the dry leaves to create space for new leaflets. At this time, fertilizer is not needed.
