The Frosty Fern
Frosty fern grows fast and is a creeper so you can use it for a ground cover or as a houseplant. The stems are bright green in color and have tinges of whitish-gold that make the foliage look like it's covered with frost, which of course is where the name comes from. When you're choosing a place to plant your frosty fern, make sure that it has enough room to grow. Although it grows to only 12 inches high, its stems can spread out more than a foot.
Outdoor Frosty Fern Care
Choose a site for planting that is in the shade and has well-draining soil. Rich organic compost and a handful of coarse sand are helpful when you plant the frosty fern.
Water your frosty fern once a week during the growing season but more often during dry spells. Really wait for the soil to dry out before you water the fern during fall and winter.
Fertilize your frosty fern once per month during the growing season. High-nitrogen fertilizer is beat. Be sure to follow the label directions.
Indoor Frosty Fern Care
Pot your frosty fern in a container with good drainage holes in the bottom and fill the pot with rich potting soil that drains well.
Keep the soil moist at all times (maybe twice a week watering) and keep it away from direct sunlight.
Feed your frosty fern once per week with a diluted, high-nitrogen fertilizer during the growing season.
A humid environment works best.
