Then I almost killed the poor thing and it was down to 3 sad leaves. Thank God it came with a healthy root system and I had a shot at reviving it. It's back to thick and lush and lovely. Ferns can be persnickety and picky and more than great foliage I want a good root system and healthy rhizomes so I've got a better shot at advising them to my home and figuring out what they need to thrive. This plant came healthy enough to survive my epic fern killing bg era and I'm grateful because it's a no bother, thick green beauty now.
