Ferns appeared on Earth many millennia ago. Currently, there are about 10 thousand species of this plant. In their natural environment, they can grow in the jungle, forests, swamps, humus-rich soils.

Ferns can also be grown at home. The main thing is to understand its features and choose the right soil for the plant.

Home-Growing Species

Some species can be grown at home:

  • Davallia with red aerial roots and bright green foliage.
  • Nephrolepis has large arched leaves (45-60 cm). Unpretentious to growing conditions.
  • Asplenium is characterized by wavy leaves, does not like touch.
  • Adiantum is very beautiful: openwork light leaves on a dark gray stem, prefers slightly shaded windowsills.
  • Platizerium looks like a deer antlers: its long leaves grow in different directions.

The best substrate for indoor ferns will be loose soil with high acidity. It contains peat, leaf soil, sand, expanded clay and other important components.

What land is good for store purchases?

Some of the most popular commercial crop substrates include the following brands:

  • Flower happiness. The nutrient medium consists of a high percentage of humic acids, minerals, and disinfecting wood resin. On this soil, the fern can develop for a long time and do not need to be repotted frequently.
  • Biovita. The soil has a fairly high peat content. It absorbs moisture well. Also, over time, a sufficient amount of humus is produced, which contributes to the full development of the root system.
  • Holas. This substrate is intended for both planting and transplanting of home and garden ferns. The components contained in the substrate are selected on the basis of peat and significantly affect the growth and development of plant leaves.

Usually, the prepared land for ferns is saturated with peat and vermicompost. It contains trace elements necessary for a handsome green man.

As a recommendation, it is advisable to carefully check the store soil before planting or transplanting for the presence of earth lumps in it. They must be kneaded and left in the open air for two hours. The root system of ferns should be abundantly saturated with oxygen and freely absorb water.
