guys i have a question regarding both of the mentioned plants.

really new in this area (vivarium plants)

how should i spray the ferns? just mist the leafy area will do or should i mist the coco peat it's sitting on once a day?

2nd question.. is this lighting enough for both the birds nest fern and the rabbits foot fern to thrive?

1x 24W 6500K spiral bulb



the plants..



Thanks in advance :)

Well, you'll have to watch the soil moisture to know when to water the roots. These ferns like to dry slightly between watering. The foliage can be misted once a day or how ever often needed to keep the humidity in the viv at the right level. Just make sure that water doesn't sit on the foliage for too long (like more than a couple hours) bc that can cause rotting problems. If that happens, you're probably spraying too much and/or too often.

The bird nest ferns (Asplenium sp.) will get HUGE. You may end up removing them.

Good luck.
