Q.Rabbit’s Foot Fern

Zone Grand Manan, NB, Canada, zone 5-5b | Anonymous added on December 30, 2016 | Answered

I was given a Rabbit’s Foot Fern with little instruction on its watering and care. It seems to be very pot bound and there is very little soil evident. It is in a large plastic pot with a water drip tray. Aside from needing repotting, should I water it from the top or the bottom tray, discarding excess water after a few hours? I also have placed it on a pebble bed and mist to help moisturize the air, as I am in the southern most part of New Brunswick Canada on an island halfway down the Maine coast, so winter is harsh and dry air is the norm in winter! It is in a second bathroom that only has a skylight and no shower. Will this be enough light? The plant is also losing fronds. Is it just in shock due to the change of environment, winter or am I killing it!?

Thank you for your help,
