How to use the Fern Soil Mix
Using the mix is easy! start with removing as much of the old soil as possible. Gently squeeze the pot while holding it sideways to loosen up the plant. Run the roots under lukewarm tap water to remove the last pieces and bits.
Also, remove any dead foliage that may still be on the plant using scissors. Now your plant is ready for its fresh Fern soil. Add a small layer of Fern mix at the bottom of the pot.
Place the plant in the pot, and slowly add Fern soil to the sides to fill it up. Make sure that the point where the roots meet the plant is just buried under the Fern soil.
Lightly pat the Fern mix down into the pot. Make sure to water the Fern mix thoroughly after repotting, as this helps settle the mix and roots down.
Why the Fern mix works.
As you might know, ferns can be quite the drama-queens. This fern mix retains moisture very well with the extra coco coir and worm castings, while still providing a good amount of drainage due to the perlite. The horticultural sand will make the mix drain even better and give it a more even texture, which supports the thin roots of ferns.
The original habitat of the Fern plants
Ferns grow in many different forests and prefer warm & damp areas of the Earth. They have thin delicate root systems and are very fussy in terms of watering. They prefer rich and well-draining soil that evenly distributes the water throughout their root system.
How to care for Fern plants
To prevent ferns from drying out, make sure to give it ample humidity and keep the soil moist at all times, without becoming soggy! This is best achieved with proper drainage and water from the bottom (placing the pot in a container of water and letting the fern mix soak up the water).
Ferns prefer bright, indirect sunlight and are very prone to leaf burn. Place them outside of the direct sun.
