Winter can be a dreary season, but adding some plants to your home décor can make it a little more tolerable. A fern is a popular plant that is fairly easy to grow and add a touch of spring to any home. Most types of ferns require high humidity and indirect light to thrive. Once the weather warms up outside, you can easily take the ferns outside. There are many different types of ferns to choose from. Just make sure to note their needs so you know you can meet them before buying.
- American Maidenhair Fern Can be a bit of a diva if not kept constantly moist, but not soggy.
- Indirect is best such as that provided by a south or east facing window.
- Generally, feed weekly with liquid fertilizer that’s diluted to one-half strength (known as “feeding weekly, weakly”).
