Fern

There are thousands of species of Ferns. We are mainly familiar with the Phlebodium Blue Fern), Asplenium and Dicksonia (Tree Fern). They all belong to the family of vascular plants and can be found all over the world. The plants have mainly found their place in rainforests.

How do you take care of a Fern?

The best location

A Fern prefers to grow up without direct or indirect sunlight. The half shade is enough! This is also how most ferns grow in nature. On the ground or on a tree under the shade of larger plants. As soon as a Fern gets too much light the leaves will turn yellow and the plant will discolour. The best place for a Fern is in the bathroom. This is due to the high humidity that is present in the bathroom. This is something the Fern enjoys very much. Moisture!

Watering the Fern

Preferably a Fern has his soil always slightly moist. In the rainforest the plant enjoys tropical rain showers, and a small rain shower he expects from you as well. Make sure you water at least once a week. Pay attention to the quantities you give. Too much water cannot be absorbed by the plant, which causes water to get into the roots. This can lead to root rot. In addition to watering, a Fern expects you to start working with a plant sprayer. Watering the plant is needed at least once a week.

Plant nutrition

Plant nutrition is not necessary for a Fern. But of course this is possible! If you would like to spoil the plant a little extra you can do this in spring and summer. Do you still give a plant plant food after the summer? Then this can be harmful for the plant. If you are going to give plant food to the Fern, do this once a month. We recommend using Universal plant nutrition, and half of a normal dosage.

Repotting

A Fern grows very slowly. It is therefore certainly not necessary to repot every year! We recommend repotting immediately after purchase, when the plant grows out of its pot and once every two years. Choose a flowerpot that is at least 20% larger than the previous one. You can just use Universal potting soil. The best time to repot your plant is in spring. In spring a plant has the most energy to damage damaged roots.

Air purifying function

A Fern belongs to the group of strong air purifiers. It opens its stomata during the day and absorbs all CO2. He converts the CO2 in into oxygen. It can also filter harmful substances and foul odours very well. And the Fern is able to do this process exceptionally well! Also very sensible to put a Fern in the bedroom. You can use some extra oxygen in the bedroom!

Is the Fern poisonous?

Ferns, unfortunately, can be poisonous. This doesn’t apply to all species, but you’d better be wary. Pay close attention to children and pets. Is there a bite off the plant? Pay close attention to any remarkable behaviour or complaints. Always contact a doctor at such times.

Diseases and peculiarities

An advantage of Ferns? They don’t get sick and vermin in a hurry. Didn’t you find the leaves of the Fern have been affected? Or do you see an animal walking on or around the plant? If so, use chemical pesticide against the bugs.
