Q.transplanting monkey tail fern

Anonymous added on November 26, 2014 | Answered

We transplanted a monkey tail fern that is a 8 ft tree. Since transplanting, all fronds have turned brown and we are fearful it will die – and we so want to keep this beautiful tree. Please advise what we can do. We had to move it by cutting down a bigger tree, leaving it exposed to full sun all day. Now in shade.

The larger a plant is, the more likely it is to go into transplant shock. It sounds as though yours may have transplant shock.
