Day 5 of PlantyChristmas !! πŸŽ„ {(Plant family)} πŸ‘ͺ The past few weeks Ive been having a pretty hard time with my mental health, which now affecting how im feeling physically. So i just want to take a little time to write a message to my plant people family; all of you who I follow and especially the people who have taken their time to follow me, get to know me and anyone who has sent words of encouragement to me. This growing little community we have is so so special, filled with lovely caring people. To those of you struggling it is OKAY to not be okay! If youre feeling overwhelmed it is perfectly acceptable to take time for yourself. If you cant do it on your own, ask someone for help! There is nothing to be ashamed of. We all go through difficult times in our lives.. I hope these holidays bring you all some peace and joy πŸ’• Gabi. 🌟 Get involved in mine and @basilandbloom_ decembertagchallenge (PlantyChristmas) by reposting our tag photo & posting along with us daily! πŸŽ„ ~

So here it is, the Boston fern guide to propagation by spores! Part one 🌿 Step 1: Locate a frond with sporagnia on the underside. They vary in size, shape and colour between fern species, but for the Boston fern they are round (coil-like) brown spots. Although they look a bit like bugs 😝 they will be easy to distinguish due to their symmetrical placement. The sporagnia should be ripe, which will also be different between fern types, but the picture above is a perfect example of what the b. fern will look like when theyre ready to go! Step 2: Cut off the frond (at the base for aesthetic reasons) and transport it it a clean, well light working area. If you havent picked it from your home it is best to transport in a folded piece of paper. Always remember to label! Once you're ready to prepare the frond, sterilse it by letting it sit in a solution of 1p bleach and 9p water for around 10-15 seconds. This is to remove any fungus or mould it has gathered while still attached to the plant. Step 3: Dry the frond by placing it onto a paper towel and gently dabbing it dry with another. Remove from the paper towel and place onto a clean piece of white paper, fold it up so that it is fully enclosed. Step 4: The goal is to wait for the sporagnia to pop open and release the spores, which is what we will be planting. This might take between 1-2 weeks. These are the best resources I found while researching this type of propogation if youd like to do some more in depth reading. I have also linked a fern life cycle video if youd like to understand each step more indepth! . Full process in video by 4pNatives: https://youtu.be/IX3HA9QQZ2s . Detailed information on the process: http://4pnatives.com/4p/FernsFromSpore.html . Comprehensive fern life cycle video: https://youtu.be/Fhk-Y0duNjg . Sorry for the long post! Thanks for reading πŸ˜†πŸ˜˜ happy propagating propagationobsessed ~
