Thanks Kerry. It needs humidity and I did not realize that when I first got one in 2019. It did not last. My houseplant book says it is a challenging plant that is best in a terrarium or high humidity. Just not an easy plant for me it seems. I will get it right some day. 👍💚 @kez001uk

Thanks very much Katy. This is this years plant. Last years wilted overnight. Needed humidity. We learn from our mistakes. 🤷‍♀️💚 @gjones

Diane I have very little success growing indoor ferns. They get crispy and dry up. Like you said - hard to get enough steady humidity. Hope this one thrives for you😊

Thanks Katy. Mine is getting crispy too. I trimmed it and have added humidity. Maybe it will improve. Thanks for the support. It make me feel better to know I am not the only one who has problems like these. 👍😍 @gjones

Thanks Phil. I only see them at Christmas time. Last year I got one but it did not survive. They seem to have become popular all of a sudden 👍💚 Hope this one does well. My plant book says not to let it dry out. Keep moist. 💖 @philstader

They are very pretty. In this new houseplant book I got it lists them as challenging to care for. I think they just need to stay well watered and not let them dry out. We shall see. I overwatered mine last year and killed it. It is like a poinsettia I think. Same care. 🤷‍♀️💚🤞🤞 @lesliecole491

I had one years ago at Christmas time and it did not last long. 😏🌞

Same thing happened to me last Christmas. They are not the easiest plant to keep. Not for me anyway 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️ @sunlovin

Well, I don't get poinsettias because they don't do well for me, guess I'll do fine with the frosty fern then! 😜
