One of the most well known fern admired for its desirable triat as a houseplant. Boston ferns are typically attractive, with long graceful fronds with tiny leaves.
Boston ferns can be displayed in various ways in hanging baskets, as part of grouping or a lush specimen plant on right window sill.
Light: Filtered bright- indirect light. Direct sunlight will scorch the leaves.
Humidity : Requires abundant humidity so mist the plant regularly. Provide as much humidity as possible and carefully monitor the soil to ensure plants stay consistently moist. You can set the plants on pebble trays filled with water, so long as the pot does not sit in standing water. You can also mist the plants with room-temperature tap water twice a day.
How to Choose the Best Pot for Growing Boston Ferns: Boston ferns will grow as large as the pot allows. Many Boston ferns are sold as hanging baskets in plastic pots, and it’s fine to leave them that way if desired. If you want to plant your Boston fern in different container, though, choose plastic or glazed terra cotta. These types of pots take longer to dry out, making it easier to maintain the plants. It can be difficult to keep a large Boston fern well-watered enough when it is growing in an unglazed container, unglazed pot, window box, or hanging basket.
