Rabbit’s Foot Fern

Zone Corsicana, Texas | Anonymous added on April 6, 2018 | Answered

I have a beautiful, huge rabbit foot fern... it lives in our living room with east exposure... this spring I am noticing that some of the fronds have something on them that looks like a deep yellow or rust... it can be wiped off... what is it and do I need to wash the fronds or do I need to just dust them? This is a new "something" for me..... Thank you for letting me know how to handle this lovely specimum...

This sounds like a rust fungus. I would cut the infected parts from the fern.
