HOW TO GROW FERN HOUSEPLANTS
Ferns are some of the most beautiful houseplants. They grow best in medium to bright light, but do not like direct sun as it may get a sunburn. Ferns are very tropical and love moist soil and high humidity. But don’t over-water because that will cause root rot. Overall ferns are fairly easy to grow and will add a bit of intrigue to your home.
Give your fern bright, indirect sunlight. No direct sun, which can scorch the fronds. Give the pot a quarter turn each week for even growth.
Keep soil evenly moist. Water the potting mix, not the center of the rosette, otherwise it can easily rot. Water less in winter when growth is slower. Yellow fronds are often a sign of over-watering.
Ferns like average warmth between 65-75°.
Ferns likes moist air. If the relative humidity drops below 50%, use a humidity tray or cool-mist room humidifier to add moisture to the air around the fern. Brown leaf tips are a sign of dry air.
IS IT PET FRIENDLY?
Like most houseplants, ferns are mildly toxic if eaten. They may cause some discomfort and vomiting when eaten. Keep away from animals and children.
