Place in bright, indirect to medium light. Avoid direct sunlight.
Plant in all-purpose potting soil or step-up your game with a terrestrial mix; 2-3 parts all-purpose potting soil, 1 part vermiculite, 1/2 part worm castings.
Ferns require evenly moist soil and extra humidity. Grow in a naturally more humid space such as a bathroom or near the kitchen sink. Place on a pebble tray filled with water. Ferns may not recover if allowed to become too dry.
Fertilize weekly during periods of active growth with an all-purpose fertilizer.
