Silver Lady Fern


Anonymous added on November 18, 2016 | Answered

We have a silver lady fern in a pot on our balcony. It seems to be struggling, as its leaves seem to be stunted in growth and some are browning underneath. Any suggestions on how to bring life back to this fern would be appreciated. I'm at a loss. It was doing well when we first got it. It has semi shade on our balcony. Can you help at all.

Your fern needs moist, well draining acidic soil.
Full to partial shade.
Add lots of organic material to the pot.
Remove old leaves as needed.
Feed every 3 months during the growing season. Use a organic slow release fertilizer.
