Lemon Button Fern Woes
I've had a lemon button fern for about a year in a room that gets bright light but is between two windows so it doesn't get direct light. My apartment isn't air conditioned so it's been around 80 degrees indoors and quite humid. There is a ceiling fan in the room but the plant is against the wall and not under the fan. I've been feeding it every 2 weeks since March and saw several new shoots but they died. Additionally, outer leaves on several fronds have turned brown. The plant is looking a bit scraggly but does seem to be alive and I'd like to keep it that way. I've checked several fact sheets and can't figure out where I'm going wrong. I got it through a Boston winter in a dry, heated apartment so I must be doing something right, which is why it's so frustrating that this plant seems to be going downhill in the summer. Any advice from this group would be greatly appreciated.
