Answer This Question

A:  Ours have grown to nearly 36” tall while spreading aggressively and lushly in both shade and sun. I’ve never seen insect infestation.

by|Oct 6, 2021

    A:  This plant gets quite large needs good light. No bugs

    by|Nov 2, 2021

      A:  It’s a pretty big plant. I thought it was smaller. It says it needs indirect light since it’s big I have it in a table with a hanging light fixture above. Not too close but enough light for it.

      by|Jul 7, 2021

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

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

            A:  I left the fern in the pot it arrived in. It grew fine outdoors all summer, and wintered indoors with minimal care. Now outdoors again, still looking good, still in original pot, a year later.

              A:  Last year I planted all of mine in 14" clay pots, used Miracle Gro timed release fertilizer around the roots and placed them on stands and stacked bricks. By the end of summer they were at least 6 feet across and 4-5' high. Keep them in shade with some dappled sunlight, water at least 3 times a week soaking soil and spraying leaves and aerial roots. These are magnificent, hardy ferns. (all info related to central Texas summer conditions)

              by|Mar 23, 2022

              A:  I kept it in the pot it came in for now and set it in a slightly bigger pot that has holes in it for drainage. Mine is outside and gets afternoon sun, so I water it every few days. Because of the homes/drainage, I don’t have to worry about overwatering.

              A:  Hi Lesliegeex! You can leave your plant in the original container for a few months. If you wish to repot your plant, we recommend using either a 10in or 12in diameter container that has a drainage hole. Use a soil that is blended for houseplants, potted plants, or foliage. If you have any more questions, please let us know at questions@costafarms.com, we are happy to help!

                A:  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!

                        A:  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!

                          Packaged well and arrived on time however, this plant was in very poor conditions. Soil was completely dried out and roots were extremely dehydrated and entangled. Luckily this plant seems to be hardy and tolerant even under little care. It’s doing okay now OUTSIDE as it requires lots of sunlight for its big foliage. Not sure if I’ll order plants online anymore unless coming from a trusted source. It may be cheaper but I’d rather know the condition of a plant before going out my way to PAY to tend and care for a neglected plant.

                          My fern arrived on 07/23/21 as promised, healthy and vibrant. I re-potted it in a larger pot. Now, I am just waiting for it to take off growing. Very, very pleased with my purchase.

                              We are sad to see you fern in this condition. We believe this was caused by cold temperatures during shipping. We recommend contacting Home Depot customer service. They may able to assist you in receiving a replacement. DelrayPlants
