Yellow Fronds
This guy has 2 fronds that have gone almost completely yellow. I’ve had him about a month. There is new some new growth, and his rhizomes are growing. He’s near a north window and I mist him daily. It’s a self watering pot which I fill whenever it’s low. Anything I’ve read says it is lack of moisture, but I feel like I’ve taken steps to avoid that. Any ideas? Thanks!
2ft to light, indirect
6” pot with drainage

Ferns tend to need to be pruned quite often so it might just be a old frond. If it is lack of moisturizer I’d recommend putting it by a humidifier
The self watering pot is a great idea!

In addition to the self watering pot, I also keep my asparagus Plumosa on a make-shift pebble tray. It has helped keep dying fronds at bay.
@sarazel I agree with @sarahsalith. A self watering pot is a great idea. Drying fonds are from lack of moisture as well.
I clipped the yellow frond and have increased his humidity with a tiny desk top humidifier. He seems happy and has a bunch of new fronds! Thanks everyone.
