    Recently I bought a phlebodium fern with beautiful fronds. After a couple of months, red spots appeared on them, and the tips of the segments dry out. How can I help the plant?

      Most ferns have a very delicate root system, sensitive to frequent over-drying and waterlogging of the substrate. Repeated complete drying of the earthy coma can be detrimental to these plants. Ferns are watered evenly, after slightly drying the top layer of the soil. Phlebodium is better to moisturize by
      the edge of the pot, without falling on the powerful pubescent rhizome, the regular wetting of which can lead to decay.
      Also, the appearance of spots on fronds may be due to the effect of a cold draft or low temperature of the content (even in winter - not lower than +15 degrees) Natalia GUBANOVA florist.

    I once read an article about this plant, and after a few months I saw it in a store and found out that it was hard to forget such a miracle. Of course I did. And for 5 years now, phlebodium has been living with me. All guests admire him, and I am proud of my beautiful fern!
    The main advantage of the golden phlebodium (Phlebodium aureum) is the bluish-gray coating on the vayas, which are good in shape. Fern grows in the warm season, shaded by a curtain, in winter I do not hide from the sun. Replanted three times. I pour a little warm water
    above room temperature, in the summer in the heat - after 4-5 days, in the winter - less often, but do not overdry. I feed with banana peel infusion, nitroammophos and organic matter (from bird droppings), but I spread any fertilizer more than, for example, for violets, so as not to burn the roots.
    In spring and summer, fertilize once every 2 weeks, in winter - once a month. I do not spray - you can spoil the plaque. The pot stands on a tray with expanded clay and pieces of brick, regularly moisturize them.

    I am a big fan of airing rooms, including in winter, so I keep phlebodium a meter from the balcony door, not in a draft.

    Fern Trimming

    I want to plant a fern on an abandoned part of the site.
    Does it need to be cut off specially?

      - Fern (or ostrich) is a perennial ancient plant that reaches 1-1,5 m in height. In winter, the aerial part dies off completely. Minimal care for them: for sanitary purposes, trim the lower and shrinking branches throughout the summer season.

    My chestnut was growing in the garden. She dreamed that he would grow into a big tree and blossom with candles, as in the south. While he was little, he grew up healthy. But here ferns began to grow around it, which used to be less. And, as soon as he outgrew me, the fern leaves began to brown and dry in the summer along with the leaves of the chestnut, a little on the ferns and a bit on the chestnut!

    He became so ugly, sick - to tears! But they say that fungal diseases of ferns are older than humanity itself, I bet there are different drugs against fungal diseases. But when a hefty chestnut is struck harder than the fern itself ... Whatever I did with this tree, I had to remove it from the garden. Plant your ferns in the farthest corner of the garden and away from everything else!

    The leaves of forest fern contain phytoncides, which destroy putrefactive bacteria and mold spores.
    For this reason, they are well to shift vegetables stored in the basement.
    • Tomatoes, apples, pears fall asleep in wooden boxes, shifting them with leaves of a fern lined with a layer of 2-4, see.
    • I prefer to store potatoes and beets in grids, which I put on a wooden platform with the height of 10. See layers of vegetables in 7-10 cm, alternate with fern layers in 1-2, see. If any vegetable decays, then the fern leaves will not let go rot on other root crops.
    • Carrots, transferred by fern, it is convenient to keep in open plastic bags. In them, thanks to the leaves, it does not rot and does not flounder. It keeps juiciness and freshness.
    • Cabbages are stored on wooden shelves. But I additionally put under them a layer of fern and cover them with heads from above. As a result, the cabbage remains elastic and crisp until the very spring.
    • I braid garlic and onion in braids, weave the fern leaves into them and hang them in the basement under the ceiling. The heads do not germinate, they are not damaged by diseases. They are kept dense and fragrant until a new crop.

    Ostrovnik feels well both on the shaded and on the sunny plot, on poor and rich soil. It is important that it is damp. In an open place, under the influence of sunlight, the plant melts (60-80 cm), and the juicy greens grow dim, acquiring a pale green color, so here more frequent and abundant watering is needed.
    More about care
    It must be remembered that the adult groomer because of the rapidly expanding underground rhizomes strongly disintegrates in different directions, appearing unexpectedly for 1,5-2 m from the landing site. Therefore, every year you need to dig out its curtains, removing unnecessary stretches of rhizomes or digging around the perimeter to a depth of 30-40 cm limiter.
    The fern can be transplanted in the early spring, before the leaves grow or in the first half of August, during maturation of the spores.
    It is better to propagate it with segments of creeping rhizomes of length 20-25 cm with two buds. They are planted to a depth of 3-4 cm from May to September.
    Wounds, abrasions, sore ulcers, dermatoses, burns, frostbite. Disputes that have a healing, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic effect, sprinkle affected areas of the body.
    Dermatoses, burns, frostbite. Leaves the leaves into powder and sprinkle the affected areas.
    With pain in the bones. Apply compresses from the leaves. The plant is poisonous, apply with caution!

    Ferns do not need fertilizing. The main thing is that the soil is sufficiently acid and moist. Once every two years, fern bushes should be renewed, pruning all old and broken waii (broad pinnate leaves of ferns and palms).
    You can mulch the soil with leafy earth. But if there is fertile soil in your area, then this method is also not necessary. In general, ferns are not very demanding on soil fertility and nursing.

    On my site a chic fern grows, but I never fed him. Just in appearance, he seems to have enough. Or is it better to feed it with something?
