I'm a fern-killer in the past, trying to reform... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
I have some newbie questions, hopefully you guys can help answer. Right now my two surviving ferns are in the pots I bought them in. Currently both are outside in the 90F heat, in trays of water, on the shady patio.
One, a Boston, has survived its second summer with me, but I nearly lost it last winter. Now it is root-bound and needs re-potting. Advice on soil mix? Dividing?
The other is a Japanese Painted Fern that did well all spring, and then looked as if it died during the summer heat. Now I see two tiny fronds re-emerging from the core of the dead plant. There may be hope. Advice for this species?
