Bird's nest fern care

7 years ago

Does anyone have one of these that doesn't get ugly brown ends? What are your care secrets? I have a job caring for interior plants and some but not all of these ferns have brown ends, both on old and new growth. . They are mostly in dim rooms and often dry out (at least on the surface) between waterings. I've had one a home for maybe a few months now of the Leslie variety and it keeps browning too. It gets bright indirect light and not too dry between waterings. I would send a picture but I've cut most of the brown off. Anyway, I'm frustrated. To me this fern only looks without brown on it. What is the secret to no brown? Thanks.
