Does anyone remember the 'love fern' that Kate Hudson's bunny boiler character gave to her new boyfriend on 'How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days'?! This blog post is dedicated to all the crazy plant ladies out there :P
I love ferns and use them a lot in my kokedama, In my experience they grow very well indoors however there are a few things you need to be mindful of when growing these guys indoors.
Ferns need water, they will dry out and can die from lack of water. You should be able to tell if the kokedama ferns need water by following our 'water weight' instructs on our previous blog post about watering your kokedama. As a rule of thumb you should water them every 2nd or 3rd day depending on where they are located.
Ferns like humidity, dry aircon or heaters will dry them out so be mindful of this and make sure you keep them moist, I use a spray bottle of water to wet the leaves when they are indoors and in the air flow path of a heater or aircon.
Contrary to popular belief, although ferns grow well in shade they can also tolerate (and actually quite like light) obviously make sure it is filtered light and not direct sunlight or this will also dry your fern out.
If your fern does dry out, you can revive it - trim off the dry leaves and keep it wet. If its a kokedama fern soak it in water once or twice a week and pop it in a humid environment like your greenhouse until it is back in shape.
Good luck lovelies.
