Fern Care

Temperature: The ideal temperature to provide is between 65-75ºF (18-24ºC) .The minimum is 55ºF (13ºC).
Light: Bright light without direct sunlight, or full shade.
Watering: Like other ferns try and keep the soil moist at all times. If the soil is allowed to dry out, you will notice the plant wilt. 
Soil: A peat based potting mix is suitable for this plant.
Fertilizer: Feed from April - September with a diluted fertilizer once a month to encourage healthy growth. Use half of what the bottle instructions advise.
Re-Potting: I would say re-pot this plant once a year or at least every two years. Once it becomes too big for the pot you could divide the plant to create more ferns.
Humidity: As mentioned above this fern is no different than others in terms of it's need for high humidity. Misting along side placing the plant on a humidity tray, or double potting should do. To double pot have your plant potted and then the container it is to be displayed in will require peat moss to be placed inside - surrounding the inner pot.
Propagation: Divide the plant and a section of the rhizome (by cutting with a sharp knife) during spring. You need at least two fronds and a section of the rhizome. This plant also produces spores on the underside of the leaflets which are a type of seed growing on the plant that can be propagated, but it is easier to follow the division method.
