For a long time I avoided my namesake. I was teased mercilessly about my name while growing up. While I love it now (how much more fitting of a name could a garden blogger have?!), I spent most of my life hating the name ‘Fern.’ Hating the plant came along with hating the name. Afterall, if there were no Ferns, I wouldn’t have had to suffer through all the jokes.
Anyway, enough therapy. Lately I’ve been really noticing Ferns (and the non-Ferns that everyone refers to as Ferns) and how beautiful they can be. The other day I saw a container featuring Foxtail Fern, which is actually a member of the lily family, that I thought would be awesome in a bright indoor spot. Here’s my version:
Keep this pot evenly moist (it might help to cover the surface of the dirt with mulch or stones) and put it in a bright indoor spot or somewhere outdoors with filtered light. I picture it in a round, cylindrical pot that is glazed with a dark bronze color.
