Just very curious what kind kf fern this is, and how I ca...

7” pot
Last watered 1 year ago
I’m not sure what kind of plant it is, but if it’s getting crunchy, then it’s dry and needs more water. Terra cotta pots actually help wick away moisture from the soil, so you may have to water more frequently to keep it from drying out. If you’re sure it’s a type of fern, then the soil probably needs to stay consistently moist - most ferns don’t like to dry out and they like high humidity. You could also try placing the pot on a tray with rocks and water to help with the humidity as wellπŸͺ΄πŸ’š
Maybe a Boston Fern? I do believe ferns like consistently moist soil as being dry can cause the tips to turn brown. Is it near a heater or AC that could be drying out the soil faster?
It almost looks like Citronella? If it is a fern, look up Ceratopteris Thalictroides and compare. Photo for example
Hmm I'm not sure if it's a ceratopteris either.. not even the woman at the nursery knew. I'll try to water it more often, I kinda water all my plants on the same schedule (1-2 times a week)
I've been keeping the soil moist, but it's still turning brown and crunchy...
