Maidenhair Fern - First Month - March 2021
Just about one month in and (knock wood), our Maidenhair Fern is still green. And, showing some signs of growth in terms of width and height. Here is the post showing off this delicate fern that we brought home in late February and have been careful to keep happy. I have a couple of brown tips, but also new growth. Thus, a mixed bag so far after one month.
If you poke around the Web just a bit, you'll find people talking about how difficult these ferns are to take care of as indoor plants. And, while I'm certainly no pro, it seems like the key for this fern (SO FAR) is to keep it mostly watered. For me, that means a couple of times per week. And a good soaking in terms of watering. I place the pot in our sink and soak it pretty good - letting the water run out the bottom for a bit before putting it back into the little plastic tray.
Once the warm days of April begin to appear, I'm going to plan on putting some of our containers out for little parts of the day to begin to harden them off until they are, eventually, ready to be patio plants.
