Your Rabbit's Foot Fern should be indoors for winter. Though you can have them in a cooler spot for the winter months, do not expose them to temperatures below 55 degrees F.

Rabbit’s Foot Fern

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,
Bonnie

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.
