help my fern-please!!

mickey3(z8 TX)March 19, 2005

After seeing pictures of different ferns, I believe my FERN is a BOSTON BLUE BELL FERN (something like that)

I bought it in Arizona and it did great inside my house for 2 years.......gorgeous and full........then we moved to Texas and it did great outside for about 1 year but then this winter something terrible starting happening...........

THE LEAVES JUST STARTED FALLING OFF!!

I could swipe my hand down and leaves would just follow, some would stay. Eventually no more green, just brown things sticking up everywhere!! Can I save my fern or is it too late??

Not sure if its due to the water, but in Texas, its very hard, high in calcium, and alkali. Can it just be going into a dorment state for a while??
