    Hmmm. I was just thinking - two ways to look at this. Even worse if at the end of a night being forced to be next to you the fern is thinking "What a prick".

    As I understand it, it does pay to make up a jig to apply straightening pressure. Tom Lipton uses water, and I suspect that you get a quicker feedback if you cool with water, but the video I posted...
