Sword Ferns

Can You Cut Back a Sword Fern, and if So, How?

Desirae317 added on April 17, 2012 | Answered

I recently bought two hanging sword ferns. They are very big. So big I'm afraid they may die in the pot they are in. So should I cut them back? Or would it be best to re-pot them?

You should repot them. You can either repot them to a larger container or divide them and put them in 2 same size or smaller containers.
