Ostrich fern question
I'm hoping someone can answer a question I posted here earlier that never got an answer...
I have a potted ostrich fern that I bought a few months ago. From the soil line to the ends of the fronds, the biggest fronds are 3-3.5' long. While the plant is "healthy" looking, all the fronds fall to the sides, and are more horizontal than vertical. Is this normal for such a plant? I'd prefer the fronds be more vertical, as with them being horizontal, it results with the center of the plant looking rather bare and empty. I don't think I should plant the plant any deeper into the soil, since new emerging fronds are already AT the soil line. I understand new fiddleheads do not like to be constantly moist and that for this reason, it's better for them to be just slightly at/above the soil line.
So is it normal for this plant... to be horizontal?
