Ferns and composting

Zone Wichita, KS | samofthesun added on January 7, 2016 | Answered

My name is Sam and I'm from Wichita, KS. I want to save my mom's fern because it's browning and I know it needs to be pruned, which I plan on doing. My mom wants to throw it away, and since I have a soft spot for nature and plants, I want to try to save it before we have to let it go. I know enough about composting to feed plants, but I was wondering if it might be a good idea to include what I prune off of the fern in the compost I put into the soil. Will it benefit it? Will it harm it? Will it do nothing at all to benefit it? Please help me figure this out. I could really use the advice.
