Large indoor plants Boston

One plant I have used to make
One of the most popular varieties of fern is the Boston fern. With its frilly leaves and long hanging fronds, it's easy to see why this houseplant is so widely admired. Boston ferns that are full and flourishing are a wonderful addition to the home. They add elegant charm and classic beauty unlike any other houseplant available.

The Boston fern is closely related to the Sword fern, which is found growing wild in Florida and in the tropical regions around the Pacific Rim. Since the Victorian era, the Boston fern has been a favorite houseplant, and it's just as admired today.

Many people buy Boston ferns to adorn their decks and porches during the warm months of spring and summer. They grow beautifully in humid locations that receive plenty of indirect sunlight, but when the threat of frost arrives in the fall, they must be brought indoors if they are to survive.

TIP: Our expert gardening advisor, Susan Patterson adds, "If the proper growing conditions are not provided indoors, the fern will react by shedding its leaves and will appear dull and lifeless. Some people give up on the fern after they notice it's not thriving indoors the same way it was outdoors. What is actually happening is the fern is having a difficult time adjusting to a lower humidity level, less light and cooler temperatures. However, with proper overwinter care and the right growing conditions, a Boston fern will thrive through the cooler seasons and be ready to hang outside come next Spring."

Ideal Growing Conditions

TIP: Susan notes, "Many ferns, including Boston ferns, are native to sub tropical and tropical rain forests. It is important that we mimic similar growing conditions the fern would have in the warm and humid forest."

While many ferns require shade to grow, the Boston fern is fond of lots of indirect light, such as that which filters through the rainforest canopy. When thinking of wild ferns, people envision dark, shady locations, but Boston ferns require lots of light. Place your Boston fern near a window that receives plenty of indirect sunshine. A bright east or west-facing window is an ideal location. They can endure dimly lit locations, but they won't flourish and grow.
