The Q&A Archives: Australian Tree Fern

Question: Hello....In just a matter of two days our very healthy fern is in the process of dying. Can you possibly tell me what might have caused this. This is the second fern we have lost in about a year and a half.

Answer: Patricia,

Very strange. I would consider that it could have been burned by fertilizer application or from a chemical application to it or its roots. It is also possible that soggy, poorly drained soil caused a root rot. Finally too much sun could have shocked and burned it. If it went down that fast it is either burn from sun or a major root problem.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
