The quintessential indoor plant. Everyone should have at least one maidenhair fern in their lives. The lovely lacy foliage and lush lime green colour has the perfect appeal! So to keep your maiden hair fern happy and healthy, follow these simple tips.
Water regularly, and keep moist
If keeping inside – find a well-lit position
If keeping outside – plant in the shade
Fertilise every fortnight with a diluted liquid fertiliser (like Thrive All Purpose)
Re-pot every two years
Place in a draughty or windy position
Let the pot dry out
Expose to direct sunlight
If your plant dries out, fill a bucket or sink with water and submerge the pot until the bubbles stop. Take the plant out and allow the excess water to drain away. Trim off any brown leaves.
