Blechnum Questions

1. Is a Blechnum poisonous?

Blechnum is a genus of ferns that are not known to be poisonous to humans or pets. However, it is always best to err on the side of caution and avoid eating any plants that you are not familiar with.

2. What is the best soil for Blechnum?

Blechnum grow best in a moist, well-draining, compost-enriched, and slightly acidic soil. They are sensitive to root rot, so it is important to avoid planting it in soils that are too wet or heavy.

  3. Place the pot in a warm, humid location.
  4. Germination can take several weeks or even months.
  5. Once the seedlings have emerged, transplant them into individual pots.

Dividing an existing plant:

  1. Carefully dig up the plant and remove the root ball.
  2. Use a sharp knife to divide the root ball into two or more sections.
