Gently separate the root system into smaller divisions and repot. Wait approximately three weeks before starting the fertilizing routine monthly.
For the energetic gardener, propagate your plant from seed by picking the 1/4 inch glossy red berry's. Wearing gloves to avoid irritating the skin, remove the coating around the black seeds. Rub the seeds against sandpaper to begin the scarification process. Afterward, soak the seeds in warm water for 24 hours. Use a seed-starting mix and plant with a 1/4 inch layer of soil. Wet the surface with a spray bottle and cover the planter with a clear plastic bag to retain germination moisture. Keep at room temperature. Within three to four weeks, the seeds will germinate. Keep the soil medium consistently moist by spritzing with more water. Once seedlings emerge, remove the plastic wrap and place it in a bright, indirect lit window. After two leaves appear, it's time to separate them into individual containers to grow into mature ferns. Continue to nurture them by providing moisture and humidity. After two or three weeks from transplanting, fertilize monthly with a mixture of 1/2 strength during the growing season.
