We will be rolling out several small fixes mid-day today (Jan 29.) We do not anticipate any disruptions or problems, but f you spot any unexpected issues after 12 noon (PST), please report them in the designated thread in the DG Site Updates forum.
Thought I'd bring this thread back, rather than start a new one...
I have started two Cinnamon ferns inside a couple of weeks ago. I bought the rhizomes from Wallymart. I couldn't tell which was the "upside", so I just stuck them in a soil less seed starting mix, watered 'em and put them in a south facing window. The little fiddleheads started popping up in 5 days. Then I decided to put them under my grow lights. My question is, I'm thinking these guys probably prefer at least partial shade; maybe having them under grow lights isn't a good idea. Anyone have any comments on this?
Thanks for resurrecting my thread...that sure is a pretty plant. I have move from that house but I still rent it out. I will have to stop by in a month and see how the ferns are doing. My new place has less shade but I am sure I could find a few spots for ferns.
Joanne: Ferns do well in shady locations. I can't really comment on your indoor grow lights. I suspect that outside heat and dry soil are the enemies, so I don't know how that translates to a moist and cool environment with a lot of light.
