Soil: Moist but well-drained, humus rich
Pellaea are best planted in a moist but well-drained, humus-rich soil of loam or sand within an acidic PH balance. They are best positioned in an area of sun or part shade. They are well-suited to being planted in pots and containers or can be grown as a houseplant. If growing as a houseplant, Pellaea prefer a moderately humid environment and bright but indirect light.

Pellaea like a soil rich in organic matter, so amend the soil with a compost before planting. Place in an area that does not receive hot midday sun.
Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. In frost prone areas, apply a dry winter mulch to protect the plant. If growing as a houseplant, allow the top of the soil to dry out in between watering.
It is possible to propagate Pellaea by spores sown when ripe at a temperature of 13-18°C.
