Hi all, I am new to this forum and gardening as well. I am currently living in southern Germany and I was walking in the woods the other day and saw some GORGEOUS ferns growing near the walking path. I dug up a small one from the roots. When I got home I put it in a glass of water until I could get a pot and soil; within the hour it shriveled up and died; dry as a bone! Was it not supposed to go in water? What happened? I want to try to grow one the are just beautiful and grow to enormous sizes!
Thanks for any insight.

Dina, can you provide us with a picture? Also, I'm not sure you should dig up wild plant and transplant them back to your own garden...sometimes it can be illegal

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. Mary Ann LaPensee
