Q.My Foxtail Fern Keeps Yellowing. I’m Afraid I’m Losing It. What To Do?

Zone Zone 7 | Anonymous added on September 8, 2021 | Answered

I ordered it from Home Depot through the mail. I already lost one of the two ordered. I brought this one inside and put it in my bathroom near a bright window. Could it be too much water or fertilizer? The pot has moss covering the dirt.

If moss is covering the soil, it likely is getting too much water. Yellowing also can be a sign of too much water. You only need to fertilize once in spring.
