Blechnum - 'Silver Lady' - browning leaves ?

Post by Mark T » Sun, 14 Jul 2002 23:48:26



I bought a blechnum 'silver lady' a couple of months ago.
It is positioned in a shady, sheltered corner and is watered regularily
(never dries out).

However a considerable amount of the fronds are turning brown from the top
of the fronds
back. They do not seem to be dying as they are still quite supple.

Is this something which should be happening as course of its yearly
lifecycle or am I
doing something wrong ?

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards
Mark

Hi Mark,
  You said your silver lady is in a shady,sheltered corner?Maybe she
needs more air circulation?This is just a guess so I am probably
wrong.But it's food for thought.Good Luck.
