A couple of weeks ago i got a Java Fern in one of those tubes from PetSmart.
The fern was okay looking with a few brown spots. I was told that those brown splotches would go away but they haven't. It has finally started growing a new leaf but it still hasn't greened up. It also has made hardly any progress rooting itself to the driftwood. ANY suggestions would be greatly appreciated, Thanks in advance.

If my leaves start to turn brown I just prune them off because all it's going to do is make the plant work to replenish that brown leave as opposed to creating new ones. Java Fern's don't root into driftwood immediately either; it's an extremely slow growing plant and it grows best when the rhizome is cut.
