If you remove the top leaf, the plant will die down to the roots. It is best to prune the tree to the ground and let new shoots grow on the crown of the plant. Alternatively, you can dig up the fern and replace it with a new one.
You should look at your fern before pruning it. Prune the ferns if you notice that there are yellow, damaged, diseased and, of course, ■■■■ fronts. Fern pruning should be done immediately if you notice any fronts.
Cold ferns die when it’s cold in the winter, but will grow back in the spring. The ostrich fern can also sprout again in the fall after the previous leaves have dried.
Hard ferns cannot be cut in half and transplanted without dying. However, resinous ferns can be cut in half to separate the stem from the roots. Since the stem is actually a root structure, the two halves of the plant grow back into two tree ferns.
It cannot be cut in half. A cyatea or rough tree can be recognized by the spiky hairs on the underside of the leaves. And they are completely different from the pretty ■■■■■■■■■ fern in that they have no spots or hairs at the base of these fronds.
Wood ferns are real ferns. Like other ferns, they neither bloom nor produce seeds. They multiply by spores that grow on the underside of the leaf or by displacement. An unusual tree trunk consists of a thin trunk surrounded by thick, fibrous roots.
When transplanting ferns, dig up the entire group and collect as much soil as possible. Lift the lump off the ground (or root area), not the leaves, which can cause breakage. Bring it to the prepared place and cover the shallow roots with a few inches of earth.
Cut a circle around the fern about 6 inches from the plant’s crown and use a spade to cut about 6 inches into the soil. New and smaller ferns don’t require as much digging as the roots are much less stable than adult plants.
Trim the outer edges of the leaves to get the shape you want.
The trunk and crown of tree ferns do not tolerate drying out, so water them regularly to keep the trunk moist and water the trunk with water in warm (and dry in winter).
The fern grows 3.5 to 5 cm per year and produces spores around the age of 20.
Ferns can be grown from cuttings, also called cuttings.
Tree ferns thrive in bright, indirect light and moderate to high humidity (see below how to increase humidity around your plant). Keep the soil evenly moist from spring through fall and administer a balanced houseplant fertilizer every month in the winter (202020) and water when the top half of the potting soil is dry.

Indoor Fern Watering
Remove any ■■■■ or brown leaves from the underside of the fern. Do this in late spring or summer. If you prune ■■■■ leaves after new growth has begun, be careful not to cut off the new growth as it may spoil or die.
- Prune the fern by removing the shoots on the outside of the pot, leaving only the upright shoots in the center.
- Bring the fern indoors and place it in a bright, sunny room where the temperature is between 50 and 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Water the fern once a week.
- Save the manure in the winter.
