Ferns are among the most beautiful houseplants, with lacy fronds, classic textures and are low-maintenance as long as you’re careful to provide the right amounts of light and moisture.
For the most part, many ferns are happy in direct light, as long as it doesn’t become too hot. You can tell if your fern is too dry as the frond tips will turn brown or die. To increase the moisture in the air surrounding your fern, put it on top of some pebbles in a tray or saucer filled with a small amount of water. It’s better to not let your fern touch the water, to avoid the roots rotting.
Misting your fern is another easy option — not directly on the foliage, which could invite diseases, but around the soil or in the air. Although most ferns like to stay evenly moist, don’t let them get soggy. Wait until the water drains out the bottom of the container and dump any excess.
It’s also important to give your fern good air circulation!
