Newbie here ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿพ So I had this same fern (crispy wave fern or birds nest fern) a few years ago and totally neglected it. Laverne was my first ever plant and I wasnโ€™t worthy of her ๐Ÿ’” But, Iโ€™m reinvigorated to start my plant journey so I bought this little number online. Iโ€™m kind of regretting it now because of how she came. Maybe I shouldโ€™ve just bought her in person instead. Iโ€™m sure all online vendors arenโ€™t created equal though. Any advice on the browning spots? I cut a few of the leaves that were totally brown but Iโ€™m not sure if it was the right thing to do ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ™ˆ #Fern #CrispyWaveFern #BirdsNestFern

Eventually theyโ€™ll be all new leaves. I have the same issue with a campio birds nest fern. This other one I have wonโ€™t grow anything new and it wonโ€™t die either. Itโ€™s just annoying me constantly. Iโ€™m thinking of potting it in sand and putting it in my brothers bearded dragons tank ๐Ÿคญ
โ€œโ€ฆWonโ€™t grow anything new and it wonโ€™t die either.โ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Ok so Iโ€™ll be patient. I definitely wasnโ€™t willing to give up yet but I was hopeful for some words of advice or encouragement. Especially since the other one (Laverne ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฅบ) grew so quickly and nicely. But Iโ€™m learning that all plants, even in the same environment and watering/light/soil conditions, may not fare the same. I do see some new growth so Iโ€™ll be patient and stay on top of watering. Thanks for your input. And the laugh ๐Ÿ˜‚
