I decided to repot my frangipani as a reward for two months of beautiful flowering and because it was in danger of toppling over from becoming top heavy in a small pot.
It is now in its new pot and hopefully with a feed, it will thrive. So having bought the potting mix, I decided to do the same for my maiden hair fern in the hope that it will become a success. I love these ferns when they are lush and prolific but mine is always scraggly and pathetic.
The books say moist but not too moist, light but not full sun etc so there is always room for huge margin of error which I seem very good at exploiting. My mother suggested adding some cold tea leaves and that was reinforced by a nurseryman I met recently so it seems that if you empty a cold tea pot occasionally, the fern will appreciate the tannins. So my maidenhair is now situated in a light position, in a new pot with fresh potting mix and some cold tea. It has no excuses now.
