Plant care

The potting compost must be kept evenly moist but never soggy or soaking wet. In a room with a low level of humidity, the slender fronds may acquire brown edges. To produce the required level of humidity, simply place the pot on an inverted dish on top of a second dish containing water. As the water evaporates it will create additional humidity. In general ferns do not require much extra feeding.
