    • Blechnum tabulare, commonly known as the Table Mountain Water Fern, is a stunning fern native to Australia, particularly found in the wet forests of Tasmania. Here are some care instructions to help you keep your Blechnum tabulare happy and healthy:

    • Light: Place your Blechnum tabulare in a location with filtered or indirect light. It prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate some shade as well. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, especially during the hottest parts of the day, as this can scorch its delicate fronds.

    • Temperature: This fern prefers cool to moderate temperatures. Aim for temperatures between 15°C to 24°C during the day and slightly cooler temperatures at night. Avoid placing it near drafts or heating/cooling vents, as extreme temperature fluctuations can stress the plant.

    • Humidity: Blechnum tabulare thrives in high humidity environments, mimicking its natural habitat in moist forests. Increase humidity levels by misting the plant regularly with room temperature water, using a humidity tray, or placing a small humidifier nearby. Avoid placing it in areas with low humidity, such as near heaters or air conditioners.

    • Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water thoroughly when the top inch (2.5 cm) of soil feels dry to the touch, but avoid letting the soil dry out completely. Ensure that the pot has good drainage to prevent waterlogging, as soggy soil can lead to root rot.

    • Soil: Use a well-draining, slightly acidic soil mix rich in organic matter. A mix of peat moss, perlite, and compost or pine bark works well for Blechnum tabulare. Repot the plant every couple of years to refresh the soil and provide space for root growth.

    • Fertilizing: Feed your Blechnum tabulare with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half-strength once a month during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or stop fertilizing during the fall and winter months when the plant is not actively growing.

    • Pruning: Remove any yellow or dead fronds regularly to maintain the plant's appearance and encourage new growth. Use clean, sharp scissors or pruning shears to make clean cuts, and avoid damaging the healthy foliage.
