Fern - Maidenhair Plant Care

Posted by Hulya Mehmet on

AFerns are native to almost every corner of the globe, but particularly abundant in areas of high moisture, like a tropical rainforest floor. They are seldom found in cold, dry climates. Ferns reproduce through spores, meaning they produce neither seeds nor flowers.

 

Light

Your Maidenhair Fern prefers bright indirect light but will adapt to medium light conditions. Keep out of direct sunlight, as it can burn the foliage.

Water

Water when the top 25% of the soil is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer. This plant will not tolerate drying out.

Humidity

 

Temperature

Your Maidenhair Fern will thrive in normal room temperatures between 17-30 degrees. Keep your Fern away from blowing air or drafty areas, as it can cause damage to its delicate leaves.

Food

Feed your fern once a month during the spring to end of summer with a general houseplant fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength.

Toxicity

Your Maidenhair Fern is non-toxic and pet-friendly.

Additional Care

As this plant is rather particular with humidity, it is normal to see occasional leaf browning. Regularly remove any dead fronds from the plant to encourage healthy new growth. Cut stems at the soil line with clean, sharp shears.
