Generalities Ostrich fern
The Ostrich fern develops into a fern. Growing they develop a round-shape shrub. Ostrich fern isn't an evergreen; during the spring, summer, autumn, winter it assumes a green colouring; the adult species are medium in size and reach 1 m in height.

Exposure Ostrich fernPosizione mezza ombra
Locate this plant in a partially shady place, where it can receive the sunrays during the coolest hours of the day. The Ostrich fern plant can be grown in the garden throughout the whole year. It doesn't fear cold weather and it bears very harsh minimum temperatures.Let's avoid exposing apartment plants to direct sunlight, which could damage the leaves, especially during the hottest months of the year. We should prefer a bright position, but with filtered light.

Watering Ostrich fernTenere bagnato
To develop better these plants need regular watering , keeping the soil moist; letís water often, every 0-1 weeks using 3-4 glasses of water . To avoid that a scarce drainage could favour the development of fungal diseases, let's remember to avoid leaving water in the saucer.

Treatments Ostrich fern
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Soil Ostrich fern
These apartment plants need to be located in a balanced soil, which maintains humidity for long. Every 2-3 years letís remember to repot the plants in a slightly larger container.
