Light & Temperature

Foxtail fern Plant prefers soft light and likes to be planted in areas with filtered shade. A little morning sun is fine, just be sure your plant receives protection in the bright, hot afternoon. Indoors, place foxtail fern in bright, indirect light. Too much strong light will burn the leaves. Foxtail fern can be kept outdoors year-round. In colder climates, however, potted ferns need to be taken in for the winter. This plant will not handle cold temperatures, so be sure to protect it from potential frosts.

Foxtail fern has tuberous roots which store water, even when the soil is dry. For this reason, it is easy to overwater this plant. Stick to a schedule of once-a-week waterings giving your fern a good drink, but letting the top three inches of soil dry out completely in between. Should you experience a drought, you may need to water more frequently. Just test the soil with your finger before doing so. Always allow for ample drainage when watering potted plants, and never let water sit in the tray.

Start feeding your foxtail in the spring, and then continue monthly throughout the growing season using a 10-10-10 plant food at half strength. Foxtail fern responds well to both slow-release fertilizers as well as liquid fertilizers. For outdoor garden ferns, you can also amend the soil annually in the fall with one inch of compost scattered around the plant topped with two inches of mulch.

Plant Care Tips

  1. Pruning: As with any garden perennial, foxtail fern requires the removal of stems at the base. This will help your plant look robust, while encouraging new growth. Periodically, you can also pinch one inch off the stems to spur growth.
  2. Yellow leaves: If your indoor fern begins to yellow, and the moisture content seems spot-on, relocate your potted plant to a sunny window to see if things improve.
  3. Fungal diseasepowdery mildew, and crown rot are known to affect foxtail ferns that receive too much water. Overwatering, and hot and humid weather, make the perfect conditions for fungus to proliferate.
  4. Moisture Stress: It is one of the most common problems with foxtail fern. Overwatering will cause leaves and stems to yellow, and the plant will eventually die.
  5. Foxtails are not highly susceptible to bugs and pests; however, the mealybug and other scale insects could move in on a plant that is unkempt. Spray your plant with organic neem oil to ward off the offenders and prevent them from coming back.
