Care Instructions

Light Requirements: The 'Autumn' Fern thrives in moderate to bright indirect light, avoiding direct sunlight to prevent leaf scorch.

Watering: Maintain a consistent watering schedule, allowing the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. Overwatering or waterlogged soil can lead to root rot, so drainage is key.

Soil and Fertilization: A well-draining, rich organic potting mix is ideal. Fertilize monthly during the growing season (spring through summer) with a balanced, liquid fertilizer diluted to half-strength.

Temperature and Humidity: This fern prefers temperatures between 60-75°F (15-24°C) and high humidity. Mist regularly or use a pebble tray to increase humidity, especially in dry environments.

Pruning and Maintenance: Remove any brown or damaged fronds to encourage new growth and maintain a tidy appearance. The 'Autumn' Fern is relatively pest-free but watch for common houseplant pests and treat as necessary.
