Q.maidenhair ferns

trevornet added on August 25, 2016 | Answered

Repotting maidenhair ferns (3, 4, 5, 6 years old) in a large container. Seems to be two distinct plants.

Q1) Do I split it and replant in smaller pots or just replant?
Q2) What potting mix do I use?
Q3) How often should I replant or repot?

Yes, you can divide the plants to give them more growing space. Repot as needed, whenever the ferns outgrow their container. See this article for more:


The best potting mix for maidenhair fern is one that contains a high proportion of peat moss mixed with organic matter.
