Indoor Ferns Types And Basic Care

Ferns are not only a common choice for interior decoration, but they are also one of the oldest plants, with thousands of species.

Ferns can be very easy to care for. However, they need certain elements to survive and grow in the various seasons.

Ferns are one of the oldest plants

The most widely used interior decoration plant is the fern, which is a seedless vascular plant. Their origins date back to prehistoric times.

There are many types of Ferns, but the Fern Nephrolepis is the most popular. They thrive in both humid and shady environments.

Indoor ferns: What should you do?

Although ferns can be grown indoors easily, there are some things you should consider in order to ensure that they thrive and grow well.

Temperature and light

Ferns prefer shade so they should be placed near a window to receive indirect sunlight and prevent their leaves from burning. Ferns need to be kept at around 20oC as low temperatures can affect their survival.


Because ferns require moisture, it should be watered every two days during hot weather. In cold seasons, it should be watered 3-4 times per week. You can also spray the leaves with water occasionally, as it is a tropical plant that needs humidity.


Because ferns need fertilizer once per month, as they are dependent on nutrients and vitamins for their growth, it is important to apply fertilizer at least once per month. It is best to purchase fertilizer that dissolves into water. It is best to wait six months after germination before you apply fertilizer.

Why does fern growth slow down?

Ferns require constant humidity but can dry out if they aren’t getting enough.

Lack of drainage causes excess water, which can cause plants to drown. It is best to allow the plant to dry for several days before adding nutrients.

It is crucial to assess the frequency and temperature of irrigation in order to adjust it to the local climate.

How do you revive a fern plant?

There are many ways to revive a fern once it has dried out. To hydrate the roots, the easiest thing to do is to take the plant out of its pot and place it in water. You will then need to drain the plant and put it back in the pot using new fertilizer and substrate.

Another way is to remove dead leaves and lift them with a rod or stick to support their structure. Finally, water the plant with enough water to allow it to grow again with indirect light.
