Honey, I Shrunk The Fern!Saturday, February 06, 2010
In my earlier post, I have tried to experiment shrinking the size of my Bird's Nest Fern as the plant is taking a lot of my garden space.
After I chopped the root shorter, the new leaves grew narrower and smaller. Much later, I repotted the rosette into a small shallow pot with very little soil at the bottom. The fern has grown back to a healthier state with nice propotionate foliage shape now. Henceforth, I am pleased to report that the method really worked, as to-date (ten months later) the leaves are still a quarter of its original size!
Happy experimenting with plants in your garden :-)
