This full, easy-care, fern grows well on porches and patios as well as indoors, gracing your front hall or living room. Boston ferns produce arching branches covered with soft, emerald-green fronds. It does best in high humidity and with consistently moist soil. Outdoors it thrives in shade or part shade and appreciates protection from hot, drying winds. Indoors, it likes a medium to bright spot (but out of direct sun) and protection from hot, dry air coming from heating vents. Boston ferns enjoy being misted when grown inside over the winter.
Fertilize every two months with a liquid houseplant fertilizer.
