Hello! This is my first post in this forum and I joined primarily because I'm concerned about the fern that I have in a pot.

I'm unsure but I think i got him about 18 months ago at a market. I've repotted him twice (I got him when he was the TINIEST little tuber) and he used to grow fronds quite often but now the fronds he had months and months ago haven't grown at all. One frond has sort of died and is all brown and curled. There's a half unfurled one as well.

I can't remember what type of fern he is... but I believe it's an Australian fern of some type (I'm Australian btw!)

I could take some pics if that would help the situation as I'm trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong and rectify it for him. I've had him in several places since moving to this house, in the bathroom windowsill, in the loungeroom windowsill, in my kitchen away from windows, ... you name it! There just doesn't seem to be any improvement. At the moment I have him sitting in the corner of the room on a table. [dunno]

I'm baffled as to why he stopped growing and any advice given would be very appreciated!
