Q.Fern is balding. What to do?
My fern has a lot of dried branches which I had to cut off. I’ve been misting it and I’ve kept it in a bright section of the house where I can constantly watch it so I see more new leaves unfurling, but its still looking quite sad. Help me. What can I do? Do I need to repot it? Do I need to mist it constantly?

This appears to have been a transition container, not intended for long term growth. It is likely that the plant has completely run out of nutrients, and is bound up in the container. I would replant into fresh soil. You shouldn't need to mist it, unless it is dry, but it doesn't hurt to do so.
