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.
