A new hybrid air-purifying fern
The Nicolas Diamond is a new variety and seems to be a unique crossing between Phlebodium and Pyrrosia. The leaves have a deep green colour and are slightly curled at the ends. Because of the Pyrrosia parent, the plant is somewhat more cold and drought-tolerant. Because of the Phlebodium parent, the plant grows a little faster. The Nicolas Diamond is a strong plant for pot sizes from 12 cm.
The crested leaves are most expressed in its juvenile stage. It is a cool grower but can also handle hot humid conditions. New growth can even appear in winter in a shady location.
