How To Care For Maidenhair Fern
Keep the Maidenhair Fern’s soil moist but not wet to the point it is sat in water. Do not let the soil dry out completely.
Keep Adiantum in a brightly lit spot away from full sunlight. This plant can survive in more shaded areas.
It is imperative you keep your Maidenhair Fern in a humid environment to mimic their natural environment, which is usually below the woodland canopy close to rivers in a low-light, high humidity environment. Ensure you mist your fern with a water mister every other day.
This fern likes moist, but free-draining soil. Avoid a clay-like potting medium. Miracle-gro’s peat-free houseplant potting mix should be fine for this plant, which you can find here.
Repot Adiantum every year or two – keep your eyes peeled for whether the roots are poking out the bottom of the pot. The best time to repot is in spring. Always pot on into a pot which is slightly larger than the rootball to allow for more growth.
