I have a Maidenhair a fern lover gave me as a housewarming plant along with a Boston Fern. It was absolutely beautiful when I got it but it has gotten very yellow despite treating it the same as my thriving Boston Fern (note: I am very much a beginner with ferns).
I think I have overwatered it (despite waiting between waterings and checking to make sure the soil wasn't sopping). I also moved it around my apartment trying to find a place where it wasn't getting direct sun, away from my AC, etc. It's now on a shelf along with some prayer plants, some trays of pebbles with water and a couple of glasses of water to keep the humidity high. I checked for root rot and as far as I could see the roots seemed okay. No weird smells or anything like that. It's also getting some small fiddleheads but when they get bigger they seem to shrivel.
I want to save this plant and not sure what to do. I just repotted it in new potting mix. Would moving it to a sunnier location help (my apartment has NE facing windows so it's not going to be in direct sun)?
