Fertilization Sensitive fern
Letís remember to fertilize our shrubs often; we can fertilize enriching our soil with manure, at the end of the winter; or we can give it a fertilizer for flowering plants, every 20-25 days, when watering. If the shrubs are large or cover a large area, we can use a slow release granular fertilizer, to be used every 3-4 months. In the spring letís favour fertilizers rich in nitrogen and potassium, to favour the development of a new vegetation and of flowerings.

Generalities Sensitive fern
The Sensitive fern develops into a fern. Sensitive 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 45 cm in height. Growing they develop a round-shape shrub.

Watering Sensitive fernTenere bagnato
Concerning those specimens grown in vases, let's remember that usually they need more watering, compared to the same shrubs placed in the ground. Moreover, they are often more sensible to temperatures, either very high or very low, and to radical apparatus diseases. To develop better these plants need regular watering , keeping the soil moist; letís water often, every 1-2 weeks using 1-2 buckets of water .

Treatments Sensitive 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 Sensitive fern
These shrubs need a compact and heavy soil, which withholds humidity for long.
