I have an unknown species of a fern. It has white dots, and chubby lines. It has blisters that I have seen since I bought this plant. It is not fully grown but sure is getting there. Please help me save it.

It may be mealybugs, but can't tell from that limited photo. Can you post a photo that shows the entire plant?

Okay!

It may be better considering that I tried to kill them with a soap water.

Your fern looks like it might be Phlebodium aureum.And it doesn't look like it's dying at all.

I agree that it looks fine so I'm not sure what the issue is.

What you are calling 'blisters' are most likely the plant's spores. Totally normal.

The "blisters" are holes in my plant. You are pretty right because my plant is doing well now.

When you initially posted your questions you were concerned about the 'blisters'. You had included a picture that led me to suggest that your fern might have oedema.

Since you have made this subsequent post I agree with the others that your fern looks healthy.
