My ferns have lost the green color of their leaves. What has happened to them, and what can I do to solve it?

Since the pandemic came into our lives, our houses have become a garden. We need to have plants in our day to dayat a deco level, and also for the energy and well-being they bring us, both on terraces and balconies, and indoors.

Among the plants that have come to give color to our homes, hanging plants stand out. And among them, stands out the curly fern, or nephrolepsis. This plant is fairly easy to maintain. You just have to place it in an area that does not receive direct sun, avoid high temperatures, and also drafts.

When it comes to watering, it is usually enough to water it a couple of times a week in summer, and once in winter. The substrate must always be moist, but it is very important to prevent the soil from puddled, or the water from wetting the top of the plant (the water must be poured directly into the substrate).

Are the fern leaves no longer green?

On the one hand, if the leaves have turned brown, that means the poor fern is short of water and is sending you an urgent attention call. In this case, remove the brown leaves, and water the plant carefully, avoiding flooding it at all times.
