I purchased a maidenhair fern in March and it has grown beautifully and seemed very content until very recently, when it started to get brown leaves. The browning starts on the leaf edges, but some leaves have now completely dried out and died. Does anyone have any experiences of this and can they offer any advice?
Internet searches suggest it’s down to underwatering, but I have been watering it regularly. It does seem very thirsty but I can’t seem to halt the browning.
