SPORE FROST
Original Photo NoisyTart

Jack Frost has taken a big bite out of my poor ferns - hoping they make a speedy recovery this year.

:lightbulb: Here's a rough guide to looking after Indoor Ferns.

1. Place the fern in a bright window covered by a transparent curtain or in a low light situation, such as away from a south or east window or in front of a west or north window. In the wild, ferns grow in or under trees and therefore tolerate heavy shade.

2. Turn the plant every two days because the fronds,(green strands) move toward the light quickly. This will ensure your fern keeps a round shape.

3. Water heavily until the potting mix becomes entirely moist. Let the top of the potting mix dry out, and then water again. Because ferns lose moisture out of their fronds, they dry out quicker than most houseplants. They also prefer tepid water.

4. Fertilize a fern with a fertilizer high in nitrogen to keep the foliage dark green and attractive. Look for a series of three numbers on the fertilizer package, such as 15-5-5. Nitrogen is the first number and the fertilizer you choose must have a high first number.

5. Mist the plant with tepid water to increase the humidity. Because water droplets sitting on the fronds may harm them, use a fine mist and spray the plant from several feet away.
