Beautiful ferns! I Love how they are so well rounded. Any tips on how you do this? Mine JF usually looks good but yours are Great, I usually have a lot of plant-lets growing off the larger leaves.

I know this is an old thread, but I'm hoping the author is still around...

How is this method working for you? Is potassium really the only fert java fern needs to be lush and beautiful? Did you end up making the journal somewhere else?

I find ferns do well with the whole range of ferts, N, P, K and trace. They respond really well to CO2 also.

if plantlets are growing off the larger leaves isnt that a good sign as thats how they "reproduce"
