To me my favorite sprouts so far are ferns. They have the most interesting way of growing. They come up as this little curled up ball. Then as they start to grow they start to unfurl. I love to see little fern sprouts it brings me lots of joy.
I would love to know more about ferns. I've never been in the mind set to read about them and start to distinguish between the different kinds. For this reason I don't know what ferns I have. I received them from the old women I keep on talking about. She yanked out the fern she had in her front garden and another one she had. From that clump several new fern fronds have developed. I have had a hard time keeping them pretty looking. They start to crisp and brown at the edges now. Last month they looked great. Now that the sun and heat are coming back they aren't doing so well. I wish I had another place to put them in that didn't receive so much sun. The pot is in the corner of my balcony that doesn't get as much light as the rest. It's not enough shade I don't think. I've tried to mist them on the hot days to see if the humidity helps. I might just have to pot them indoors and stick them on my computer desk where the ghost plant succulent is. The ghost plant is not doing good and just looks horrid.
