Testers Wanted: Large Hanging Fern

This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is a resize of the Maxis "Falling Fern", which always seemed to me to be inappropriately small (dare I say - abnormal....) Anyway, I brought it up to a size that looked more like a real fern would (or a least more like any fern that I have ever owned). Hope you like it as much as I do!

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

That maxis one looks like it would be in my house. I have NO luck with indoor plants! But your's looks like it came from my Mom's house and it is much prettier and healthier looking than the Maxis one. Thanks for sharing and it works great!

Thank you, it is so much better looking. Now I actually will buy ferns for my sims. I usually avoid buying them because they look let's say...pathetic

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Great job Doctor Mom...more plants are always needed. Maybe something different for outdoors can be conjured.

I for one think the game could use a lot more plants...I don't use the sims2 version of this fern because I thought it was ridiculously small too.
Thanks for making it visible!
I'll be using it now
Thank you for sharing
