about a week ago, i got this fern for our place. i told the lady at the store that i'm not very good with plants. she told me not to worry, that plants actually tell us when they aren't doing too well, and that they begin to droop if they need help.
yesterday i came home in the afternoon and the fern was seriously drooping. i rushed to give it water. a few hours later, it was perky. i think the leaves lifted up about 2-3 inches. amazing!
