Quick Care Guide

Water Frequently

This plant loves a consistently moist growing medium. You should check this plant frequently to ensure that it is watered almost routinely, to prevent it from drying out at all.

Medium Light

This plant will benefit from being in a location with low to medium indirect or ambient light. Exposure to harsh, direct sun will cause brown and crispy leaves.

High Humidity

This plant requires a high humidity environment (75% >) to thrive. Lower humidity levels may result in crisping or uneven yellowing of leaf edges.

Problems & Maintenance

Pesticide burns the leaves of a Boston Fern. To keep pests at bay, treat it with a mildly soapy water spray. It is also sensitive to fertilizer and may burn if treated to too much of it.

Suitable for Indoors

This is a plant that will live happily indoors and prefers cool temperatures. Exposure to direct sun and warm weather will cause leaves to pale in colour and brown.

Pet Friendly

Hooray, this plant is pet and child friendly! No parts of this plant are toxic when ingested or irritating to the skin.
