Planting a cinnamon fern

Zone 30458 | hedinga5447 added on May 8, 2016 | Answered

I received by mail order 2 cinnamon rhizomes. One end was completely flat as having been sliced the other end looked like roots. I planted even with the soil with the flat end up. Is that correct?

Yes, you can cover lightly with mulch to help protect the rhizomes until they are established.
Water the newly planted rhizomes 1" per week.
