How to Grow

The Boston Fern prefers bright, indirect light and thrives in humid environments. It can be grown in a variety of soil types, but it prefers well-draining soil that is moist but not waterlogged. To propagate, simply divide the plant at the root ball and replant in a new pot.

Care Tips

To keep your Boston Fern healthy, make sure to keep the soil consistently moist and provide ample humidity. You can achieve this by misting the plant or placing it on a tray filled with pebbles and water. Prune any dead or damaged fronds to encourage new growth.


The Boston Fern is a versatile plant that can be used to add a touch of greenery to any room in your home. It is particularly well-suited for bathrooms and other areas with high humidity levels. Its cascading fronds also make it a popular choice for hanging baskets and pedestal planters.

Planting Tips

When planting your Boston Fern, make sure to choose a pot that is slightly larger than the root ball to allow for growth. Use a well-draining soil mix and add a layer of pebbles at the bottom of the pot to promote drainage. Water the plant thoroughly after planting and keep the soil consistently moist.


To keep your Boston Fern looking its best, make sure to provide it with regular maintenance. This includes regular watering, pruning, and fertilization. Use a balanced fertilizer every 2-3 weeks during the growing season to promote healthy growth.

Pests and Diseases

The Boston Fern is relatively pest-resistant, but it can be susceptible to mealybugs and scale insects. To prevent these pests, make sure to keep the plant clean and free of debris. If you do notice a pest infestation, use an insecticidal soap or neem oil to treat the plant.
