A. trichomanes is a compact evergreen fern forming a rosette of blackish-stemmed, pinnate fronds with small, rounded or oblong segments; well-suited to planting in a dry wall. When in growth if grown in pots apply a half-strength balanced liquid fertiliser monthly. Grow outdoors in humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil though self sown plants survive in seemingly dry wall cracks. Prefers alkaline conditions. Bright midday sun can cause damage.

Dead or damaged fronds may be removed as necessary.
