Maidenhair

  • The name Maiden Hair fern actually refers to the Adiantum genus of about 200 different species that grow around the world, everywhere from New Zealand to the Andes.
  • Many varieties are especially suited to growing on rock walls around waterfalls, where the water seepage and moisture in the air keep them from drying out.
LIGHT
  • Direct sun will lead to scorching, but too little light will cause poor growth and yellowing fronds.
  • If possible, place in a location that gets indirect morning or afternoon sun, such as a northern window, with no drafts.
WATER
  • Due to the importance of moisture for this plant, it’s best to plant it in a plastic pot with drainage holes.
  • Alternatively, keep it in the plastic pot that it came in, and place this in a more attractive outer cachepot.
  • Clay pots alone aren’t recommended because they allow the soil to dry out too quickly.
  • And when the soil dries out, the fronds shrivel up and die immediately.
  • This is not a plant you can be lackadaisical about watering, because you also cannot let the roots sit in puddled water.
SOIL
  • The soil needs to be kept constantly moist, but not soggy.
  • If your maidenhair fern dries out and its fronds turn brown and die, there may still be hope.
  • Cut the fronds off at soil level, and keep the soil moist. The plant may re-grow after a few months.
  • Regularly trim these away at soil level.
FERTILIZER
  • Fertilize monthly year-round with half-strength liquid fertilizer.
