In this way, can ferns survive cold weather?
Ferns that do not withstand cold are usually the kinds found in pots indoors. Though it is a good idea to let indoor ferns spend some time outdoors on patios and balconies, they must be brought back inside when overnight temperatures dip below 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
Also, what temperature can ferns survive? Temperature: These ferns can survive the occasional blast of cold, down to 50 F or even slightly colder for a few hours. However, they really thrive between 60 and 75 F.
Moreover, how do I keep my ferns over winter?
- Trim the fern, removing the shoots at the outside of the pot and keeping only the most upright shoots in the middle.
- Bring the fern inside and place it in a bright, sunny room where the temperature will stay between 50 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Water the fern once a week.
- Withhold fertilizer during the winter.
