Why are the leaves falling off of my fern?
Incredibly dry soil
Be sure you’re not underwatering your fern. Keep a consistent watering schedule when 25-50% of the soil volume is dry. Water thoroughly and discard the excess water in the saucer. If you accidentally let your fern’s soil dry out completely, you may see fronds droop, crisp up, and leaves fall.
How do you tell if Boston Fern is overwatered?
The first sign that a fern is overwatered is usually yellowing or wilted leaves. One surefire way to determine if it’s time to water a Boston fern is to touch the soil with your fingertip. If the surface of the soil feels slightly dry, it’s time to give the plant a drink.
How do you bring a Boston Fern back to life?
Water the plant. If the soil is dirt dry, you will need to soak it in water for an hour or so, so it loosens up. Make sure all the excess water drains out the drainage holes. To prevent your Boston fern from dying from this cause in the future, make a habit of watering the plant regularly.
