Pot them up as you normally would, but keep them in a closed plastic bag for a few days until they perk up. Water well, but drain any standing water, and place in a well-lit location. The higher humidity helps them to recover from their journey, and they can photosynthesize to produce needed energy. Open the bag a little at a time to give them a chance to adjust, and eventually you can remove the ferns from their bag(s).

To: <ferns@hort.net>

Hi Everyone,

I need some help please.

Does anyone have suggestions about how to t reat newly arrived Adiantums.
Their fronds are still alive a few had been broken that had been travelling
awhile whithout soil and light inside ziploc bags.

What would be the best soil mix to use?

If there are still someone out their willing to se nt me some Adiantums
please x1000000 contact me or any other ferns that are epiphytic or growing
with a rhizome.

I will be forever thankfull.
