Spike Moss

Family

Selaginellaceae

Origin

South Africa

Environment

Moderate light; no direct sunlight. It's main enemy is water sitting on the leaves which will quickly melt it. Keep soil evenly moist, but not soggy. Never allow the soil to dry out. Nest fern requires minimum 50% relative humidity. Brown, shrivelled leaves are the result of dry air. Put this humidity-loving plant in a terrarium or mist the foliage every day with room-temperature water to give it the moist air it craves. They are best suited for Terrarium.

Combine half potting mix with half peat moss. Don't use potting mix that contains fertilizer (it can dissolve too fast and burn delicate fern roots).

In general, ferns are low-maintenance and hardy, but they do require a bit of upkeep. Ferns require a lot of indirect bright light and not direct sunlight. You can keep it in balconies but make sure no direct sun falls on the leaves. As the ferns have fragile leaves, they tend to burn.

Ferns in general love humidity. You can spray in the air above the fern and let the mist settle on leaves. Most ferns like an evenly moist soil with regular waterings. Water them daily but just enough to keep the soil moist and not wet. Allowing the soil to dry out between waterings stresses these plants.
