Also asked, can a Boston fern live outside?
Although Boston fern is often grown as a houseplant, it thrives outdoors in warm, humid climates in USDA zones 9-11. With adequate moisture, the plant may tolerate drier climates. Frost may kill the fern to the ground, but it will rebound in spring.
Additionally, are ferns indoor or outdoor plants? Ferns thrive in moist, shady outdoor areas, but the lush green foliage can also grow well in a hanging pot either indoors or outdoors. The smaller amount of soil and limited space means a fern growing in a container dries out faster than those planted directly in the ground.
Additionally, how much sun does a Boston fern need?
Boston fern light needs vary depending on the time of year. The plant benefits from bright, indirect light during fall and winter. A location where the plant gets at least two hours of indirect sunlight per day, preferably in the morning or late afternoon, is ideal.
How do you take care of a Boston fern indoors?
To care for Boston ferns, keep them outdoors if you live in a warm, humid climate, or keep them indoors if you live in a cooler climate. If you keep your ferns indoors, place a humidifier near them so they don't dry out. Water your ferns regularly so that their soil is always moist but not damp.
