Boston Fern is one of the most common ferns you see in people's homes. Arching long green fronds forming an elegant mound characterizes this houseplant. Boston Ferns prefer medium light levels, so try and keep your plant within 4 to 7 feet of a sunny window providing indirect sunlight to the houseplant. If the foliage begins to wither, the plant is probably not receiving enough light. You may remove the dead fronds as needed. Keep the soil moist at all times with exception to the winter months. In the winter, water your fern once the soil feels dry to touch.
