Heart Fern

Zone Toronto | Abroadandhappy added on April 5, 2018 | Answered

I am having trouble with my Heart Fern, it is in the bathroom next to a well lit window with little direct sunlight. We keep the soil moist and the room is often humid too. When I look closely I can see the there are regularly little green shoots coming out of the soil but they don't grow any further and die off). It's a plant that has struggled as we didn''t water it enough at the beginning and it almost died. But there are a couple of healthy leaves left and the fact that it has small shoots coming give me hope. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Can you upload a photo? I'd like to see what is going on. I'm inclined to say that it could have a fungal infection. I'll get a better idea of what is going on once I see it.

Are there any spots in the soil that look like it could be a fungus, or any other strange coloration?

It is best if you can avoid any direct sunlight at all. This can cause burning, but I don't think that this is the case here.
