Kimberley is easy to care for and adaptable as a houseplant. As with all ferns, high humidity and consistently moist soils are necessary for the plants to thrive. Overly saturated plants, however, will struggle to survive.
Indoors the plants will do well in a bright window with indirect light.
Water in ground plants deeply, keep containers consistently moist.
Fertilizer isn't needed regularly, but feeding your plants a few times a year, will help with performance.
