Adiantum pubescens, also known as the maidenhair fern, is a delicate and graceful fern species belonging to the Adiantaceae family. This fern is native to several parts of the world, including parts of Europe, Asia, Africa, and North and South Americ
Light and Location: This fern thrives in bright, indirect light. Place it in a location where it will receive daylight, but avoid direct sunlight as this can burn the leaves.
Temperature: Adiantum pubescens prefers a moderate temperature between 15°C and 25°C. Protect it against drafts and sudden temperature changes.
Humidity: This fern likes high humidity. Try to keep the environment moist by spraying regularly, especially during dry spells and in winter when indoor air is drier.
Watering: Keep the potting soil moist, but not soaked. Water when the top layer of the soil begins to dry, usually once a week. However, avoid allowing the roots to sit in standing water as this can cause root rot.
Pot and soil: Plant Adiantum pubescens in a well-drained potting soil that is rich in organic matter, such as peat moss or coconut fiber mixed with perlite or vermiculite. Make sure the pot has drainage holes to drain excess water.
Fertilization: Feed the fern during the growing season (spring and summer) with a water-soluble houseplant fertilizer, diluted to half the recommended strength. Do not give the fern fertilizers during the dormant period in autumn and winter.
