All year round for container plants, but outside periods of frost and high heat.

Suitable for indoor growing.

Size and maintenance of the bark beetle

It is then necessary to go over it several times and make sure to remove all the roots to make it disappear.

Comments on bark beetle

This small fern fears the sun and therefore prefers shady areas, often more humid.
Its growth is relatively slow and at most will only reach 50 cm in height.

As a house plant, water it regularly to prevent the soil from drying out.

Inside, if the leaves turn black, it’s usually because the air is too dry.
Then soak the pot in a basin of water and place the plant in a cooler place.
