Fern Care

Macho Ferns get BIG. They makes a perfect porch fern as long as you have a big space for them. Full sun or shade, your Macho likes to stay well watered. Repotting into a larger pot will help keep your watering time down. In the shade these ferns will develop a deeper green coloring. In full sun expect a brighter color. Remove any dead or damaged fronds at the base. Overwintering indoors is possible if you keep your fern watered and warm. Macho ferns are more susceptible to cold temps than other fern varieties. Keep them above 40 degrees.

Kimberly Queen Ferns are easy. They can take some neglect and our full, hot southern sun. But watering consistently will keep these growing throughout the summer. Their fronds keep an upright habit and a bright green color. Remove any dead or damaged fronds at the base. Overwintering indoors is possible if you keep your fern watered and protected from freezing temps.

Foxtail Ferns have great personality. Part of the Asparagus Fern family, they can tolerate shade or full sun. These ferns can take a little neglect and don't mind drying out between waterings. These are slow growers, they can fit into tighter spaces than other fern varieties. In the shade they will develop a deeper emerald green color and longer fronds. In full sun they become a brighter shade of green with shorter, stockier fronds. Remove any dead or damaged fronds at the base. Overwintering indoors is possible if you keep your fern watered and protected from freezing temps.
