Maidenhair Fern Plant Care
Houseplants & Flowers

  


Maidenhair Fern is a delicate looking fern with a dark, wiry stem. Adiantum Fern is the botanical name for this beautiful little fern. Moist humid air, warm temperatures and bright, indirect light are requirements for the Maidenhair Fern. It is best suited for growing in a terrarium or a naturally humid room.

Popular houseplants of the past, ferns are not always easy to maintain in normal household conditions of todays home. Ferns can be a little intolerant of conditions that don't meet their requirements. They are most definitely not for those that want to spend little time on their plant's care.

Houseplant questions or problems? You can send a houseplant question but before you do, please read this information on watering your indoor houseplants, how to help keep your house plant's root system healthy and lighting for your houseplants. These are most important for your house plant's health and this is some of the information I will refer you to when you send an email.

Some houseplants will survive just about anywhere but ferns need constant moisture and more humidity than many plants. Bright light is usually a requirement, although a few ferns tolerate a lower light situation. Most ferns will do well in bright, indirect light. Requiring a regular schedule of watering and care, they should not be allowed to dry out completely.

Be prepared to spend more time on your ferns than you would on many other plants. Ferns tends to lose foliage on a regular basis, especially if the lighting is not quite right, the humidity is too low or the watering is not correct. And, let's face it, it's never easy to get everything perfect!

Lower, older fronds should be the first to go, as they are replaced with new growth. Cut out any fronds as they begin to yellow or turn brown as this will help encourage new growth. Ferns can look unsightly if they are not kept well groomed. It is normal for a new plant to shed some of its old foliage while acclimating to a new environment.

Temperatures for Maidenhair Fern should be somewhere between 55°F and 75°F. Ferns in general will not do well in excessively low or high temperatures. Provide as much humidity as you are able. Plant in a terrarium, use a humidity tray, group with other plants or give it a home in your most humid room! Please provide bright, indirect light for your Maidenhair Fern.

Watering Maidenhair Fern

Potting mix should be kept moist at all times. Do not allow to dry out completely. Allow topsoil to become just dry to the touch before watering. Should not be kept overly wet either. This is one plant you will have to pay some attention to for good results. Please read sections on watering and lighting for your houseplants.

Keep your Maidenhair Fern's foliage clean and initially keep an eye out for insect problems. Mealybug and scale can sometimes be a problem but a good wash down with soapy water should be sufficient to control these pests. On some ferns this can be difficult and it may be easier to remove the foliage with the pest problems first and then spray the rest with soap mixture. Just make sure you treat as soon as you notice a problem as they can damage your plant.

Thanks for visiting and come back soon as plant care information, pictures and more are being added all of the time. I hope that your indoor tropical fern plants and all of your plants and flowers are happy, green and growing because that is why I started this site PlantAndFlowerInfo.com.
