The Q&A Archives: Dividing Ferns

Question: How do I propagate ferns from established plants?<br>

Answer: Ferns can be propagated by division. Just remove the plants from their pots and divide the rootball into several pieces by slicing right through it. Each piece should contain several fronds and lots of roots. Then repot your new plants and new fronds will grow. Tidy up the plants by cutting back the old fronds and leaving just the new fronds.
