I bought a tree fern for my bathroom. I’m happy with it, but, as you might expect, it’s leaning quite significantly towards the light. Is there any way of correcting this for a more symmetrical look?

    Keep turning it round on a regular basis.

    Not very helpful I know but that window is beautiful.

    Would it help to put a mirror opposite the window? Adding a grow light would probably be a bit of overkill I imagine.

    Can you not put it outside for the summer?

    I bought it for the bathroom. Maybe I should have kept it outside whilst the fronds were emerging ...then brought it indoors.

    Now, this is what I initially planned to do, but was told not to because apparently the fronds get all twisted and unattractive.
