How to Care for a Kimberly Queen Fern

How to Care for a Kimberly Queen Fern

Use these instructions to care for a Kimberly Queen Fern indoor plant. This guide will tell you how to water your fern; its light, temperature, and humidity preferences; and any additional care it might need to help it grow.

LIGHT REQUIREMENTS
Your Kimberly Queen Fern prefers bright, indirect light, but can survive in the direct sun if it’s watered on a regular basis and the soil remains moist.

WATER REQUIREMENTS
Allow the top 2-3” of soil to dry out before watering. The fronds of the fern will become pale green when the plant needs water. Crispy brown fronds, especially in the center of the fern, usually indicate overwatering.

HUMIDITY PREFERENCE
Your fern prefers slightly higher humidity. Mist the fronds on a regular basis, especially in the winter months when it’s drier inside.


OPTIMUM TEMPERATURE
This beautiful fern does not like to be cold, so it’s best to keep the temperature between 65-80 degrees. If the temperature falls below 60 degrees, it will stop growing.

PLANT FOOD
For best results, use a general houseplant fertilizer at half strength once every three months. Never feed a fern when the soil is dry, it will burn the fronds.

ADDITIONAL CARE
Regularly remove any dead fronds from the plant to encourage healthy, rich, and green growth. Make sure your Kimberly Queen Fern is not in a drafty area in your home or office.

TOXICITY
Kimberly Queen Ferns are non-poisonous to humans and pets.
