A month and 1/2 ago I purchased a 6" georgeous, apparently healthy boston fern; young, full and leafy. It stayed in a plant garden in a room in the house on rocks in a copper plate with a 1" lip filled about half way up with water for humidity. It sat in the plate with a georgeous, healthy well budding orchid whose blooms I was told would last up to 3 mos. All flowers and blooms are gone after 1 month. Don't want to get discouraged about my gardening disability because I love plants...can you help?
