5 Ferns Fit for Every Style

5 Ferns Fit for Every Style

It's a fern fest! Who doesn't love a fern - nature's frilly friend? Originally found in the cool, damp corners of ancient forests, these unique beauties bring a little touch of whimsy to any space. They first became popular as a houseplant in North America in the 1800s, so these guys are no stranger to indoor living. One of the most common housewarming plants, ferns adapt well inside under the right conditions, and can even be placed in a shaded spot outdoors for the summer months! Let’s get to know some of our fern friends.

First, some care tips!

Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Mist the fronds regularly to increase humidity, especially during dry winter months. Dull, dry fonds, are often an indication that your fern is lacking humidity.

Light: Most ferns prefer bright, indirect light. Avoid placing them in direct sunlight, as this can scorch their delicate foliage. However, some ferns, like the Korean Rock Fern, can tolerate lower light conditions.

Soil: Plant ferns in a well-draining, peat-based potting mix. A mix of peat moss, perlite, and pine bark works well. Ensure the pot has good drainage to prevent waterlogging.

Nutrition: Feed your ferns with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing during the dormant winter months.
