Q.Fern Hanging Basket

Anonymous added on May 22, 2011 | Answered

My fern is dropping its leaves. Might be that I let it get too much sun–they look burned. I have had it in the shade for days now and it is getting worse. Could it be something else?

It might have sun scald, which is like a sunburn for plants. There is not to much you can do for the damaged leaves. They will continue to turn brown. But keep it in the shade and watered as it should be and it should regrow the leaves.
