The dainty fronds of the Maidenhair are very susceptible to drying out. This fern will not tolerate dry soil, so it should be kept lightly moist at all times. The fronds can be misted as well.
Maidenhair will do well in very diffused light. Any direct light will be harmful to the plant.
EASE OF CARE
Maidenhair Fern are so delicate, skip one watering and they will be dried up completely. If you place the plant somewhere near a sink in a kitchen or bathroom that you see every day, it should be easier to maintain.
