Ferns need a bit more love than most plants. In order for the fronds to stay their luscious green, they do require more humidity and water. Ensure you are not letting the soil dry out completely. We love placing ferns in bathrooms and kitchens so they can thrive in the humid environments of those spaces. Ferns do require light! Place your fern in a location with bright, indirect sunlight but never direct.
Pet Friendly: Yes, ferns are pet-friendly!
