Leather Leaf Fern, which official name is Arachniodes Adiantiformis, is a kind of wood fern. It originates from the tropical woods in South-America. The oldest remaining’s of fossil ferns are more than 360 million years old, but the fern varieties we are familiar with nowadays didn’t appear until “only” 145 million years ago. In these days, fern plants could grow up to 15 meters high!
In earlier times, when you had a busy schedule, people believed that you have to carry a bag of fern seeds with you. These seeds made sure that you could move mountains in less time!
Besides the fact that some stems of Leather Leaf give an extra dimension to a floral design, it also offers another benefit: it is air purifying. Air purifying plants convert CO₂ during the day into oxygen and they improve the air humidity, because of the water vapor they bring into the air. The leaves also have an important job to do: they absorb a number of harmful substances that are suspended in the air and then break them down.
