In this regard, how often do you water maidenhair ferns?
Water regularly with a garden hose or watering can. Maidenhair ferns prefer soil that is moist to the touch. You might have to water as frequently as every three days to keep the soil sufficiently moist. Do not allow the soil to become water logged or flooded, however, as the fern is susceptible to root rot.

Also to know is, why are the leaves on my maidenhair fern turning brown?
Maidenhair Fern Troubleshooting If the green leaves are turning brown, this could indicate that the plant is being watered with hard water or that it is receiving too much direct sunlight.

How do you take care of a maidenhair fern outside?
Warm laundries, bathroom and kitchen windowsills are all good spots.

They do well in positions where they get some very early morning sun or some filtered sun.
