How do I propagate my Davillia..rabbits foot fern?
Last week we had to bring our Davillia fern inside due to night temps. in the 30's. We took this dubious oppertunity to water her well and do some grooming. Then we sat her just inside the door. She looked really good for the first few days. Then, one morning I noticed that several of her 'feet' had been broken off, some with fronds attached and some with just the fuzzy 'feet'. As I was picking up the pieces, the two kittens ran up to me & starting playing chase around the fern. So, knowing I had found the culprits, I put the fern in a safe place. How do I start new ferns from the pieces I saved. She also requires repotting this season and I'm sure I'll lose even more "feet". How do I propagate the pieces? Also, is there a way to repot the mother plant without losing alot of "feet". Any help would be appreciated! Thanks a bunch!
