|I bought this Fern a couple months ago and it was very sad looking. I've repotted it, placed it into my chameleon tank for humidity and uvb. So far the plants fronds have gotten longer but the plant still looks sad in general. What should I adjust to fix the poor guy? The tag says it's a bronze Venus maidenhair.

|That is what maidenhair ferns look like. Very dainty, frilly. Just keep them evenly moist, away from drafts and provide good humidity and a bright spot. No real harsh sun.

|I agree with BigBill and would add that the frond leaflets bruise very easily. Avoid touching them as much as possible.
