Hi! I’ve had this birds nest fern for a couple of years and it was going really strong. Recently there aren’t any new sprouts coming up and the center just seems like it’s dirt and dry. I can see the little nubs but it doesn’t seem like they can grow. I heard that you shouldn’t water directly in the center because it can cause rot but I’m no expert. Any suggestions? This is the only plant I’ve managed to keep alive and don’t want to lose her.

Its a result of dry air, or allowing the soil to dry out too much before re- watering. Lack of humidity causes major problems, the tips of the leaves may turn brown, and the plant may stop growing. If the humidity in your home is too low, consider putting your fern on a wet pebble tray, be sure the plant is sitting on pebbles and NOT in the water.
