Boston fern is relatively trouble-free, but it can occasionally suffer from some of the same problems common to many indoor plants, including scale, mealybugs, and white flies. When grown outdoors, slugs can be a problem.
The Boston fern needs bright indirect light when grown indoors (outdoors, it prefers denser shade).
It is important to keep the root ball moist at all times. If your Boston fern is sitting in a somewhat dry area (instead of humid), mist with water frequently to keep moist.
This plant requires low maintenance.
This plant is safe to pets.
