'Fairy Hair' takes the term "finely divided foliage" to its ultimate extreme. It produces clouds of thread-like green leaves, with individual lobes that are barely wider than the leaf veins. As a result of the reduced leaf surface, 'Fairy Hair has a very slow growth rate: 60 cm tall, and 30 cm wide, in ten years! A rare, and choice plant for the collector.
