Love my air ferns !
Earlier this year I bought some small adorable decorative bird cages and I have put the air ferns in them. I cannot tell you how beautiful they are and they can go anywhere. A light mist now and then and they last forever ! They stay green, they are hardy, they are decorative and can be used anywhere. You will love them as much as I do.
September 20, 2018
I am very happy with the ferns. I would buy them again.
I am using them in terreriams for gifts with beach sand and shells.
September 17, 2018
Just love it!
I am 73 and my Mom had these in my childhood. Just love them. I purchased two. They bring so much color to your room and no maintenance.
February 1, 2015
Absolutely Amazing!!
I bought two of the air fern's. One I kept for myself, the other one I gave to my 86 year old father. I put the fern's in a glass bowl, with some sand and rocks. My dad was over the moon and fascinated by their history, in addition to the minimal care required. I have mine in the bathroom, to give it some moisture from the air. Dad has his in the living room, "so he can enjoy it more often." The only issue I have found is there was/is a distinct odor of male cat urine in the fern's. Neither of us have cats, and the shipping carton was completely dry and intact. The odor is fading, thank goodness!! I would absolutely buy this product again!!

Amazingly beautiful!
My mysterious air fern arrived today and I am so happy. I didn't know this could be so pretty. I have a ready pot and it didn't take long to set up. Now, it's like a breath of fresh air in my bathroom. I plan to have more for the kitchen.
July 15, 2015
Such a fun way to brighten a dark corner
Ferns look so cute next to knick knacks or books on a shelf. Can be put in a pot or vase or just tuck next to an item!

IVAN M on Jul 7, 2019
Can the ferns be put in an area where they don't get much light?
A shopper on Oct 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: They do not need any light at all, because they aren't even actually plants; rather, they are a marine animal that looks like a fern. When dried they are brown and are dyed green, then sold as "air ferns".
do you ship to canada?your response to this didn't specifially say you would ship to Canada
Kaye F on Mar 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The Mysterious Air Fern is not available for shipment to Canada. We hope this information will be of help to you.
do you have an approximate size so I know how many to buy?
A shopper on Nov 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The fern will be approximately 6” tall and 7” across at the longest points once it opens up. They can grow up to 1” per year. You can mist water on it monthly, but it is not necessary. We hope this information will be of help to you.
can you place the air fern in the shade of an open front porch? and how big is the ferns you sell so I know how many I need to order?
Carolyn M on Apr 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. This is for indoor use only. The fern will be approximately 6” tall and 7” across at the longest points once it opens up. They can grow up to 1” per year. You can mist water on it monthly, but it is not necessary.We hope this information will be of help to you.

Thank you,

Miles Kimball
How many ferns does it take to fill a 4" container?
A shopper on Jun 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I think three would give it a nice full look. It's always nice to have a few on hand-I even give them as gifts when I give someone a candle in a decorative container-this way they can recycle the container.
Can one plant be separated into two or three? I have small glass globes I want to put them in.
A shopper on Oct 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. That information is unavailable to us, although any plant can be separated if done properly. We hope this information will be of help to you.
How long does it take for an air fern to turn green after you receive it in the mail?
A shopper on Jun 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. This will arrive green. We hope this information will be of help to you.
What size is the fern, please?
A shopper on Nov 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They are small..maybe 3-4" across..you can pull them apart a little. I put 2 ferns in a clay pot that is 6" long by 2" wide and they look great....the best thing about air ferns is they last forever and no care is required!!! I've had them for years and always enjoy the look!!!
I got mine yesterday, its beautiful, but it smells so bad! How do I get the smell out of it?
C D on Jul 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Try taking it out of the basket If you can’t Just put it under running water with a little soap that smells good It shouldn’t hurt it Hang it where it will dry out
How big is this air fern?
A shopper on May 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It's not large at all I have it sitting in a coffee mug I chose this fern because my cats like to chew on plants yet they seem to not even notice it's there. I've had it for 2 years now and I love it very low maintenance no soil or watering needed.
How big are these air ferns?
A shopper on Dec 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It's hard to describe size, but the ferns nicely fill a 4 inch pot and 2 would look nice in a 6 inch pot
Since they are dried and brown and then sprayed green, what happens as they grow? What color are the parts that grow?
A shopper on Aug 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They don't really grow. They are arranged as you want them when you put in an empty pot. They maintain the green color and stay just as you started with them. I have one in a little hanging clay pot and another in a clay pot in my kitchen. They are very pretty.....................Good Luck!
How do you fertilize?
Maryjo on Jun 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You don't fertilize, water or do anything except enjoy it.
what species is this? Botanical name?
Valerie W on Jan 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The species name is Sertularia argentea, also known as the "sea fir". We hope this information will be of help to you.
How soon does this plant need to be taken out after it arrives?
A shopper on Aug 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. We suggest to open it and place it out once you receive it. We hope this information will be of help to you.
