    1 week. i bought it like this thinking i could save it,,,

  • It could be still OK. Last year's leaves die off in the spring and the new ones start coming through. On the other hand, it could have died from drought in a small pot with no watering. Plant it out somewhere damp and hope for the best.

  • I'm sure it will be happy, jimp. I've seen it growing wild on Scottish mountains.

    My Holly Ferns are our door plants. I have notice some of them have long narrow twisted leaves that never mature. These leave seem to tough and narrow while the normal leaf is light and tender. What is the problem. Could this be signs of Root Rot?
