Q.Maidenhair Ferns

Anonymous added on April 15, 2014 | Answered

I have a hard time growing maidenhair ferns. First I use to kill them, by fertilizing them. Then I heard that was not good for the maidenhair ferns. So I stopped fertilizing them, changed the soil, and still didn’t have much luck. They are alive, though. I no longer kill them, but they are not thick. I also read that acidic soil is not the best choice for them either, and my soil was 1/2 miracle soil, and 1/2 sphagnum peat moss – peat moss is acidic. So last February, I changed the soil again. Organic soil with 1/3 of sphagnum peat moss. I see new babies coming out, but still some others are dying. I’m known for having a green thumb. Can you please tell me what I’m doing wrong? Thank you.
