Q.Why Are My Ostrich Fern Leaves Curling?

Zone Burlington Vermont 05401 | Fallintokn added on May 24, 2020 | Answered

I live in Vermont. My apartment is fairly warm, I do not have a lot of windows. It is in a corner next to a window. I have a humidifier set up next to my plant that has been there for two days now. The soil seems moist. Some of the leaves are starting to curl and I’m not sure what that means?
