I have a double crown tree fern,one side grows OK the other grows to about 12 inches only and/or dies off ??? leaving no fronds at all, whats the problem please



Probably not enough water for both parts. They're an understorey plant, in woodland that receives a fair bit of rain, so it may be that it requires more of the wet stuff. Is it in a pot? Phil J
