Growing Ferns

Bookmark This Article to Delicious

Ferns are best grown in a chiefly organic potting setting similar to the soil in the biological environment. High-quality growth can be attained with most types of ferns with a blend of 75 percent peat moss and 25 percent sand as long as water drainage is swift.

Any pot container with decent drainage is acceptable but the growing intermediary should be kept damp all the time. If drainage is not rapid, the standing water can damage the roots.

Ferns grow best at normal indoor temperature of 70-80�F. Ferns easily get damaged outdoors when the weather is cold.
The one environmental feature that strongly influences fern growth is humidity. In general, ferns with thick fronds are able to tolerate humidity much better than those with thin fronds.

Indoor ferns may require tiny amounts of fertilizer on an occasional basis. One has to be careful regarding the amount of liquid fertilizer since many ferns will not tolerate excess fertilization- if this occurs the leaves will scorch.
The majority of ferns will grow in partial shade. In the home, plants should get as much light as possible without being positioned immediately in front of sun�s rays. One can always use an artificial light to help growth if the indoors is constantly dark.

The one benefit of growing ferns is that they are quite resistant to infestations and disease. However, ferns are delicate plants and are easily damaged from pesticides and herbicides. If a fern appears infected, one only needs to remove the disease part by cutting or removing the insects by spraying the plant outdoors with water.
Today, most people grow ferns to decorate the landscape or brighten the indoors. Ferns can be grown in baskets, pots, urns and in moist areas of the garden. Many gardeners also plant ferns in areas of the yards where it is often difficult to grow grass.

Ferns can sometimes be a hassle to grow- so the best way to enjoy ferns is to buy them from a nursery. If you want to know more about ferns, please visit a wholesael fern nursery.

Some nurseries sells large volume fern while others sells retail and you can order less than a wholesale volume of ferns.My favorite fern is the Evergreen Chrsitmas fern.It stay green year round.So in the Fall and Winter,you don�s see the dormant dead looking tops.

The stereotypic image of ferns growing in moist shady woodland nooks is far from being a complete picture of the habitats where ferns can be found growing. Fern species live in a wide variety of habitats, from remote mountain elevations, to dry desert rock faces, to bodies of water or in open fields. Ferns in general may be thought of as largely being specialists in marginal habitats, often succeeding in places where various environmental factors limit the success of flowering plants. Some ferns are among the world's most serious weed species, including the bracken fern growing in the British highlands, or the mosquito fern (Azolla) growing in tropical lakes, both species forming large aggressively spreading colonies. There are four particular types of habitats that ferns are found in: moist, shady forests; crevices in rock faces, especially when sheltered from the full sun; acid wetlands including bogs and swamps; and tropical trees, where many species are epiphytes.
