I picked up a bag of bare-root Tenneessee Ostrich ferns at Walmart a few weeks ago, and planted them in pots so they would be up and growing well before I plant them near my pond. However, a week and a half has passed and I'm seeing no signs of life. Does it typically take this type of fern a while to start coming up, or am I just out of luck?
I'm keeping them in a sunny window for warmth (the bag instructions said they like sun), and keeping the soil moist but not wet. Any thoughts or suggestions?
