Caring for Boston ferns involves providing the right environment and attention to keep them lush and vibrant. Here are some essential tips:

Light: Boston Ferns thrive in bright, indirect light, and you should keep your Nephrolepis Exaltata away from direct sunlight to avoid scorching their fronds. Place them near a north or east-facing window for ideal light conditions.
Temperature: They thrive in temperatures between 60-75Β°F (15-24Β°C). Avoid exposing them to drafts, sudden temperature changes, or cold air.
Humidity: Boston ferns love humidity. You can mist them regularly or place a humidifier nearby to increase humidity. Alternatively, you can place a shallow tray filled with water and pebbles beneath the pot.
Watering: Keep your Fern’s soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water the Fern thoroughly when the top inch of the soil feels slightly dry. Ensure good drainage to prevent root rot. Use room-temperature water to avoid shocking your Boston fern plant.
Fertilization: During the Fern’s growing season (spring and summer), feed your Nephrolepis Exaltata with a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks. Reduce feeding in fall and winter when the Fern’s growth slows down.
Pruning: Trim away dead or yellowing fronds regularly to encourage new growth. This also helps to maintain your plant’s shape and appearance.
Repotting: Repot your Boston fern every 1-2 years or when it outgrows its container. Use a well-draining potting mix rich in organic matter.
Pest Control: Watch for common houseplant pests like spider mites and aphids. Treat your Fern with insecticidal soap or neem oil if you notice any pests.

Remember, consistent care and attention to your Boston Fern plant’s needs will keep your Boston Fern healthy and thriving.
