DIFFICULTY

Moderate maintenance

LIGHT

Boston ferns prefer bright, indirect light. They can tolerate some direct sunlight, especially during the morning hours, but too much direct sun can scorch their delicate fronds. If growing indoors, place your fern near a window where it can receive plenty of filtered light.

CARE TIPS

Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water your Boston fern whenever the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Water thoroughly, allowing excess water to drain from the bottom of the pot. Ensure that the pot has drainage holes to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot.

Humidity: Boston ferns thrive in high humidity environments. If you're growing your fern indoors, mist it regularly with water to increase humidity levels. Alternatively, you can place a humidity tray filled with water and pebbles beneath the pot to create a humid microclimate around the plant.

Temperature: Boston ferns prefer temperatures between 60°F to 75°F (15°C to 24°C). Avoid exposing them to drafts, as they are sensitive to temperature fluctuations. They can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures during the winter months but should be protected from frost.

Fertilizing: Feed your Boston fern with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half-strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid over-fertilizing, as this can lead to fertilizer burn. Reduce or suspend fertilization during the winter months when growth slows down.

Potting: Use a well-draining potting mix rich in organic matter, such as a blend of peat moss, perlite, and compost. Repot your Boston fern every 1-2 years, or when it becomes root-bound, using a slightly larger pot. Gently loosen the roots when repotting to encourage healthy growth.

Pruning: Remove any yellow or brown fronds as they appear to encourage new growth and maintain the plant's appearance. You can also trim back any leggy or overgrown fronds to promote a fuller, bushier plant.

Pest and Disease Control: Watch out for common pests such as spider mites, scale insects, and mealybugs. If you notice any signs of pest infestation, gently wipe the affected areas with a damp cloth or treat the plant with insecticidal soap. Ensure good air circulation around the plant to prevent fungal diseases.
