Reminiscent of the maidenhair tree Ginkgo biloba, the magnificent Mahogany Fern is an evergreen with long fronds, which are divided into wedge-shaped leaflets that are tinged red when young. As they mature, their mauve shade turns to a luscious, deep green, accentuating the striking aesthetic of this beautiful plant.

Didymochlaena truncatula was first penned by John Smith in 1841, using the Greek words, didymos and chlaina to reference the twinned-cloak structure of the frond's shape. 'Truncatula' can be translated to mean 'truncations' that refers to the leaflet's jagged edges.

Plant Care:
