Boston fern appreciates a little TLC. It likes warm and humid conditions and doesn’t enjoy outdoor temperature extremes or indoor drafts from air conditioners or heating vents. It’s important to maintain stable growing conditions for Boston fern, as any fluctuation in care may quickly damage the plant.
Water Boston fern frequently to prevent the soil from drying out and fertilize the plant regularly during its active growing stage. Misting your fern helps to raise the ambient humidity and is a must-do practice if you live in a dry climate. Pruning your fern isn't a major chore. Simply remove dead fronds as needed to keep the plant looking attractive. Generally speaking, this plant only falls victim to pests or diseases when it's grown outside and neglected.
