► This fern is native to the tropical forests; thereby, it is constantly exposed to swampy and damp soils. Also, the soil is usually acidic in nature. Therefore, if you wish to have this tropical beauty at home, you need to offer it with almost identical growing conditions.
► A humidifier or pebble tray may be of help in order to fix the humidity conditions of the area where the ferns are growing, especially indoors. Placing the maidenhair ferns upon a half-filled pebble tray prevents them from drying up.
► The temperature must always remain warm, but scorching heat hampers its growth. Do not leave the maidenhair exposed to the harsh cold weather. It isn't frost-resistant.
► The soil is highly responsible for the healthy display of the plant. Your maidenhair fern prefers a rich soil that has good organic compost. Whether you are growing the plant outdoors or indoors, mulch is a must for the soil of the plant.
► Avoid fertilization immediately after reporting the fern. This may burn the roots of the plants. This is because soon after reporting, the soil is quite rich in nutrients, so fertilizers would just be an overdose of the same, and be detrimental for the plant as a whole.
► Propagating this fern is not hazardous at all. All you need to do is to cut the stems after they are too long and filling. The best time to grow it is during the spring.
