All the plant gossip, through the grapevine. Pun intended

Plants growing in containers need more fertilizing than those in the ground. The more you water, the more quickly you flush the nutrients out of the soil.

Plant Essentials

Fertilizer/ feed for the plant:Feed the Fern every 4 weeks with a 10-10-10 fertiliser. Over-feeding the Fern can cause damage to the plant.
Repotting : Repot it in a larger pot only when the fern outgrows the current pot and its roots are visible.
Propogation : The easiest way to propagate is through plant offsets that develop from either the roots or the trunk. It is also possible to propagate ferns through spores that are found underneath the leaves.

Crispy grey leaves in a fern are a classic sign of under watering. To remedy this issue, water and mist it regularly to maintain a well-watered and humid environment.
2. Am I overwatering my Fern?
Ferns love water, plant it in a well-draining soil and make sure to keep the soil moist, but not soggy, at all times.
3. Why are the leaves of my Boston Compacta yellowing at the base?
Yellowing leaves at the base are an indication of over-watering.
