Boston ferns are a New Orleans, Southern staple
During the summer your fern will need water every day. On hot days, the fern may require a second watering, especially if it is in a container.
1 The Appeal
Boston Ferns can improve the curb appeal of your home, as nothing evokes the feel of New Orleans’ beautiful wrought iron balconies and quintessentially Southern porches than these stately plants.
2 Care AND MAINTENANCE
Fertilize your Boston fern with a houseplant fertilizer monthly from April to September and every other month from October to March.
3 LIKES AND DISLIKES
Choose soil that drains well. Ferns don’t like wet or water logged roots at all.
4 KICK IT UP
Every six months use two tablespoons of Epsom Salt to a gallon of water to energize your ferns.
