Maidenhair Fern turning brown

Cflower(US)April 30, 2005

I have it planted under trees but it does get some late afternoon sun and some filtered sun. What causes it to turn brown and crispy.

Lack of water, too hot temps, too much sun....

Ours turned brown also - allowed it to dry out. It came back (small leaved variety did not the large leaf) but it was definately hurt. We now use a water grabber type product (gel) and mix it 1 part to 6 parts soil whenever we buy new ferns that will be severely hurt by lack of water. Seems to be working out.
