Thor Hammer Fern is a rare Java Fern variant that can grow unique shaped leaves which are Y shape pattern. It is a beautiful, medium-size fern that is best used at midground or background position.

Younger Thor Hammer Fern usually has less pronounced Y shape leaves as the shape development is linked to plant maturity. As it matures, the Y shape of leaves are more pronounced. Not all leaves may appear Y shape.
