Plant Care

Watering:
The Heart Fern (Hemionitis arifolia) thrives when kept consistently moist. Ensure the soil remains evenly damp but not waterlogged. Allow the top layer of soil to dry slightly before the next watering. Aim to provide hydration when the soil feels slightly dry to the touch. Use room temperature water and ensure proper drainage to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root issues.

Light:
Provide your Heart Fern with filtered or indirect light for optimal growth. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, as this can scorch its delicate fronds. Place it in a location where it receives gentle, filtered light throughout the day. A spot with bright, indirect light, such as near a north or east-facing window, is ideal. If you notice the fronds becoming pale or scorched, adjust its placement to a more suitable light environment.

Fertilizing:
Feed your Heart Fern with a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Dilute the fertilizer to half the recommended strength to avoid overfeeding. Apply the fertilizer to the soil, ensuring it doesn't come into direct contact with the foliage. Avoid fertilizing during the dormant period in fall and winter. Signs of over-fertilization may include brown tips on the fronds.

Repotting:
Consider repotting your Heart Fern every 1-2 years or when you observe overcrowded roots. Use a well-draining, high-quality potting mix suitable for ferns. When repotting, gently remove the fern from its current container, inspect the roots, and trim any dead or rotting parts. Place the fern in its new pot, ensuring it has enough space to expand. Water sparingly in the initial weeks after repotting to aid the fern's adjustment to its new environment.
