Tree Ferns – how to

 In Athelas Plants, Home

A common problem we hear from our customers is that their Tree Ferns are in poor condition. By far the two most popular symptoms are stunted fronds, or the top of the trunk has shrunk, preventing new fronds from emerging. Watering, every other day and feeding (with a liquid feed) every other week are the key to having a happy thriving tree fern.

How you water and feed is what makes is also very important, nearly all nutrient and water uptake will come through the top, not through the roots in the ground. So when watering/feeding make sure it’s in to the top of the trunk not at the base.
