Maidenhair ferns are delicate plants with lace-like appearance. They can be difficult to keep healthy indoors, as they're quite particular about their growing conditions. The most important environmental factor when it comes to growing this fern is humidity—it thrives on moisture. Avoid direct light as its delicate foliage can burn easily. Be sure to water your fern consistently, either daily or every other day, never allowing the soil to dry out. Well drained soil is recomended along with good drainage of the container.
