Planting & Care
Growing holly ferns from a starter plant or divided plant is remarkably simple. The plant prefers well-drained, acidic soil with a pH between 4.0 and 7.0, and thrives in rich soil high in organic matter. Dig in two or three inches of compost or other organic material, especially if your soil is clay-based.
Indoors, holly fern needs a well-drained, lightweight potting mixture and a pot with a drainage hole.Although it grows in full shade, holly fern does just fine in partial, but not punishing sunlight. Indoors, place the plant in bright, indirect light.

Sunlight: Full Sun to Partial Shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: 12°C

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • Holly fern likes moist, but not soggy, soil.
  • During dry weather, give the plant about an inch of water per week.
  • Indoors, water the plant whenever the top of the soil feels slightly dry.
  • Water deeply, then let the pot drain thoroughly.
  • Avoid soggy soil, which may result in root rot.

  • Fertilize holly fern using a diluted solution of a balanced, slow-release fertilizer after new growth emerges in spring.
  • Alternatively, feed the plant occasionally with a water-soluble fertilizer or fish emulsion.
  • Don’t overfeed; ferns are light feeders that are damaged by too much fertilizer.
