'Korean Rock' Fern
The Korean rock fern, also known as the Korean rock brake fern or rock polypody, is a small, low-growing fern native to Korea. It is commonly grown as a houseplant and is prized for its attractive, lacy foliage.
To care for a Korean rock fern, follow these tips:
Watering: Water the fern regularly, keeping the soil evenly moist but not soggy. Be sure to let the soil dry out slightly between waterings.
Lighting: The Korean rock fern prefers bright, indirect light and can tolerate low light conditions. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the delicate leaves.
Soil: Use a well-draining, peat-based potting mix and be sure to plant the fern in a pot with drainage holes to prevent excess moisture from sitting in the soil.
Fertilizing: Fertilize the Korean rock fern during the active growing season (spring and summer) using a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer. Follow the package instructions for proper application.
Humidity: The Korean rock fern prefers a humid environment. To increase humidity, mist the plant regularly or place a humidifier nearby.
By following these care tips, you can help your Korean rock fern thrive and enjoy its attractive, lacy foliage for years to come.
