Season of Interest
All year round.
Boston ferns do best in bright, indirect light. Too much shade can result in sparse fronds that aren’t their typical bright color.
To successfully grow Boston ferns, it is key to keep the soil lightly moist (but not soggy) at all times.
Best Growing Conditions
It’s important to maintain stable growing conditions for Boston ferns, as any element to their care that’s out of whack can quickly damage the plant. Plan to water frequently to prevent the soil from drying out. And fertilize from spring to fall when the plant is actively growing. Regularly misting your fern or using other means to raise humidity also is typically a must unless you live in a very humid climate. While pruning typically isn't a major chore, you should remove dead fronds as needed to keep the plant looking attractive.
