Thanks A a good trick is to feed them in the crown with miricalgrow or similar
once a month ,this produces more fronds.
If your interested in ferns see my blogs on tree fern fronds if you havent already

Thanks M
someone suggested pouring a can of coke in the crown...what a it got a drink of sugared water and after 3/4 days lo and behold a bit of green appeared. Will try the feed though...thanks
