Bird nest fern

Zone Ormond Beach, FL | PattiS added on May 31, 2016 | Answered

I've had my bird nest fern for years. When it needs water, it droops. Within a few hours, it is upright again & happy. Yesterday when I watered it thoroughly it did not return to its upright position; still drooping. What could be wrong? Help!! Thank you. Patti

Make sure that the soil is moist and not soggy, and that excess water is draining from the pot.

Aim for watering more evenly, maintain a moisture level. This is less stressful to the plant.
