    • Cyrtomium fortunei, commonly known as the Japanese holly fern or Fortune's holly fern, is a popular evergreen fern that can be grown in the UK. Here are some care instructions to help you keep your Cyrtomium fortunei healthy:

    • Light: Place your Cyrtomium fortunei in a location with indirect or filtered light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

    • Temperature: This fern prefers average room temperatures between 15-24°C (59-75°F). It can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures, but avoid placing it near cold drafts or in extremely hot environments.

    • Humidity: Cyrtomium fortunei thrives in high humidity levels. You can increase humidity by misting the leaves regularly or placing a tray with water and pebbles beneath the plant. Avoid placing the fern near heating vents or radiators, as they can cause dry air.

    • Watering: Keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Water the plant when the top inch of the soil feels dry. Ensure good drainage by using a well-draining potting mix. Avoid letting the plant sit in standing water, as it can lead to root rot.

    • Fertilization: Feed your Cyrtomium fortunei with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer once a month during the growing season (spring and summer). Follow the package instructions for the proper dilution and application.

    • Pruning: Remove any yellow or damaged fronds to maintain the plant's appearance and health. Prune back overgrown or leggy fronds to encourage new growth. Use clean, sharp pruning shears to avoid damaging the plant.
