    I have a dicsonia antarctica tree fern that seems to have survived the winter (it was wrapped well, after most of the fronds had been cut off, leaving only one or two to help with photosynthesis this spring). When I recently unwrapped it, there was green on the lower parts of the fronds, thought the tips/top halves were brown. I trimmed the plant's fronds, leaving only the green portions, as I read that helps "spring the plant into action and out of dormancy".

    How quickly would I see croizers/shoots given spring is here, and the temps are about 17 C in the day now, with lots of sun? How long should I wait before I am worried?
