Pruning: The Arborvitae Fern does not require pruning unless you want to remove any dead or damaged fronds. If pruning is necessary, it can be done throughout the year.

Fertilization: Fertilization is generally not required for the Arborvitae Fern. However, if you choose to fertilize, use a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in spring according to the package instructions.

Winter Protection: In colder months, protect your Arborvitae Fern by applying a layer of mulch around the base of the plant to help insulate the roots from extreme temperatures. If freezing temperatures are expected, consider covering the fern with a breathable fabric or burlap to provide extra protection.


When planting the Arborvitae Fern, ensure that you choose a shaded or partially shaded location in your garden. Dig a hole that is slightly larger than the plant's root ball. Gently place the fern in the hole, making sure the top of the root ball is level with or slightly above the soil surface. Backfill the hole with soil, firming it gently around the roots. Water the plant thoroughly after planting to help it establish. Keep the soil consistently moist, but avoid overwatering. With proper planting and care, your Arborvitae Fern will thrive and bring its delicate beauty to your garden.

The Arborvitae Fern thrives in shaded or partially shaded areas. It prefers moist soil, so water it regularly to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Aim to water when the top inch of soil feels dry. As for sunlight, it is best to provide the fern with filtered or indirect light rather than direct sunlight. This combination of proper watering and suitable light conditions will ensure the healthy growth and vibrant appearance of your Arborvitae Fern.
