Plant my elkhorn fern
Plant in a well-ventilated substrate, avoiding excess peat, which is too difficult to moisten. A mix of sphagnum, porous gravel, bark and potting soil will work well.
Where to place it? It needs light but no direct sun, also avoiding drafts. Beware of very dry or very wet areas.
Water my elkhorn fern
This is the most complicated part of indoor fern maintenance.
The leaves can dry completely if the plant is too little watered as well as if it is too much. Beware, the drying of the ends is rather an index of too dry air.
If the the leaves of the ferns seem to wither and the clod is wet, do not water, let it dry.
Attention, use preferably a water at room temperature, these ferns are real chilly.
Repot my elkhorn fern
The operation is delicate, and aims to regenerate the substrate of the plant, to give it a well aerated centre and more space.
In late winter, find a 2 cm larger pot than the previous one, and add a mixture of sphagnum, porous gravel, bark and potting soil.

Leaves that dry or change color are a sign of bad watering.
If the root ball is wet, then it means you water too much, if it is dry, it is that you do not water enough. Simple, no?
