Q.My maidenhair fern has brown leaves.
I’ve had this maidenhair fern for about a month now, and its leaves are slowly going brown and dying. It’s in an office with air conditioning, but it’s in a dish of water and I mist it every day. The soil is damp, but it’s held out of the water so it’s got good drainage. I’m not terribly good at keeping plants, but I really want to get better. Please help!
You mention dish of water. The pot itself should not sit in water. A tray filled with water and pebbles; to keep the pot above the water is best.
Make sure the air conditioning is not blowing on the plant.
Maidenhair Ferns can be kinda fussy; they need to be moist but not over wet.
