Hemitella in the greenhouse

These are evergreen ferns and make fine decoration in the greenhouse, the fronds being feather-shaped and often as much as 10 ft. long. They like a compost of loam, peat and sand, and should be grown in well-drained pots in a shady position.

Pot in March and give them plenty of water till September, when the amount of water should be slightly less. They also like a good syringing daily from March to Sep- tember. The temperature should range from 45 to 65 degrees, and treated generously, the ferns will thrive well.

These plants are increased in the same way as almost all other ferns, that is, by spores sown on sandy soil.
