Bright, indirect light will keep your Fishtail Fern happy

Only let the top layer of soil dry out between waters; ferns love moist soil for their roots.

Can cope with drier air than many ferns, but will appreciate the occasional mist in a dry spot too.

Use a well-draining, moisture-retentive soil; added zeolite will help retain moisture and nutrients while sand will help excess water drain away and allow space for the roots to move. Look for mixes designed for ferns which use these or similar components.

Feed every four waters in the growing season, and reduce to every six in autumn and winter.

Average household temperatures of about 18-24°C are fine- make sure it doesn't drop below 12°C in winter.

Yes, but too much nibbling won't be good for pets, small humans or the plant!
