#BlueStarFern New to the app, but I’ve had this fern for a year and the past month it’s been drooping. I just watered it and last Monday too. It doesn’t seem to want to bounce back. It looks dry? More light? New soil? What soil does it need? because I think it might be hydrophobic right now.
6ft to light, indirect
5” pot with drainage

It’s probably time to repot. Given that, it’s likely drying out faster than you’re watering it. Give it a good soak by bottom watering it and then stay on top of it, watering as soon as that top layer of soil is dry until you repot it. Any regular house plant potting mix is good for ferns; they’re not too picky, they just like their soil to stay moist.
