I Got a New Fern!

Northern Maidenhair Fern

My friend CG has these mixed in with her regular ferns.  Last time I visited her, she was nice enough to pull one for me but warned me over and over that they're way more sensitive than regular ferns and to get it in the ground right away.  I did, AND I gave it a massive dose of moist ol' compost plus a gallon of water and lookee here- not a bit of wilt!  Isn't it beautiful?

My Garden Guru has done it again!! Now all that little fern needs to do is start making babies!

CG, I read that they don't spread as quickly as regular ferns so I'll keep treating it to extra water and delicious compost. I REALLY want more of these beauties and thank you again for gifting me with it!
