Now I have been reading that ferns don't need a lot of light — so I got one. However, what I can't seem to find is just how much is meant by not a lot.
I plan on keeping the fern in a room with one big north facing window. The room never gets direct sunlight as there is a balcony above the window. The only place for the fern is in the back corner of the room. This means that it will be getting minimal light.
The fern in question is a scented oak fern (gymnocarpium robertianum).
Just how much light does it need to survive?
