How to Care for an Emina Fern

Use these easy-to-follow instructions to care for an Emina Fern indoor plant. This guide will tell you how to water your Emina Fern; its light, temperature, and humidity preferences; and any additional care it might need to help it grow.



LIGHT REQUIREMENTS
Emina Ferns prefer bright, filtered, or diffused light out of direct sun.

WATER REQUIREMENTS
Maintaining the correct soil moisture is key to keeping your Emina Fern happy and healthy. The soil should be constantly moist, but not soggy and never let the soil dry out completely or sit in water. Water enough to keep the soil surface evenly moist during the spring and summer. During the winter, decrease the frequency and allow the soil surface to dry slightly before watering.

HUMIDITY PREFERENCE
Your fern prefers slightly higher humidity. Mist the fronds twice a week during the spring and summer, and cut back to once every two weeks in the winter while your fern goes into a resting period.

OPTIMUM TEMPERATURE
This beautiful fern does not like being cold and does best when the temperature is between 60-75 degrees. If the temperature falls below 60 degrees, it will stop growing. Avoid cold drafts and sudden temperature changes.

PLANT FOOD
For best results, use a general all-purpose liquid houseplant fertilizer once every month during the spring and summer. 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. Cut stems at the soil line with clean, sharp shears. If you wish to boost the fern’s vigor and deepen the plant’s color, supplement regular fertilizing once during the spring and again in midsummer with 2 tablespoons of Epsom salts dissolved in a gallon of water.

TOXICITY
Emina Ferns are non-poisonous to humans and pets.
