How big is this fern? And. What type of light does it like? And what about bugs?

Asked by Lola March 30, 2020

The macho fern is beautiful. It also grows up to at least 6 ft. Tall, and wide. It will quickly outgrows a starter pot.

What size pot is ideal? I'm new to plants and I have no idea where to start!

I put mine in a 12 inch pot and it seems to be doing fine. Although, it had some trouble this winter- lots of leaves dropped and some turned brown at the tips. I then did some reading and realized that the dry indoor heat was causing the problem and began misting it once a day (at least when i remembered to) and that seemed to help a lot because it soon started looking a lot healthier. Good luck!

What are the dimensions of the pot?

Hello, You can place the macho fern in low, medium, or bright light. If it is in a particularly sunny spot indoors, it's best to protect it from the direct sun with a sheer curtain. We hope this information is helpful!

Can i split this plant and repot into two pots? It's a little big for my bookshelf.

Asked by Zita March 23, 2017

Answer

Hello! The Macho Fern will likely have issues if you split and repot the two due to transplant shock. If you choose to do so then check the plant for a good dividing line to separate the existing plant and safely make a good clean cut thru the entire root mass and soil profile from top to bottom. Try to minimize root injury as much as possible. Afterwards okay to repot each part into a similar size container. Choose a good quality potting soil formulated for house plants or ferns. Do not plant too deeply and keep the top of the soil line at the same level in the new pots. Afterwards water in and then maintain moderate soil moisture while they reestablish in the new pots. Avoid overly dry, and also overly wet or soggy soil, and do not have any standing water at the base of the plant or pot. Anticipate some leaf yellowing, scorching symptoms of the leaves, and perhaps some dieback or desiccation of the new growth. Thank you for your inquiry!

Hello! You may cover the exposed roots with soil. When the plants do become root bound you may repot them into the next size container using soil formulated for houseplants. Thank you for your inquiry!

Can this plant also be for outside

Answers

Hello! The 8 ¾” Macho Fern can grow outside but will need to be protected and brought indoors when the temperature falls below 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, place in an area protected from overly windy conditions. Otherwise they will perform and grow well at temperatures between 55 to 90 degrees F. Thank you for your inquiry!

Was not very happy with the Macho Ferns I received. While they were in good condition and healthy, they were a forth of the size I get every year from another home improvement store for the same price. I wasn't able to go there due to the quarantine. So disapointed!
