I have a house fern that is about 100 years old. My question is that the fern is turning brown and I'm wondering what I am not doing right. I think it needs to be repotted but thought it would be better to do this in the spring. Could you please tell me why it is turning brown?

    Normally, ferns this time of year are hurt by low humidity. Make sure that it is getting misted regularly and set it on a tray of pebbles filled with water. This will raise the humidity around the plant.
