Care Guide for Boston fern

Watering Care
Watering Care
The boston fern should be watered consistently at the soil level, avoiding the fronds. Water after the first inch of topsoil has become dry. Keep this species in a well-draining pot, and its roots should not sit in overly soggy soil. At most, the soil should be kept lightly moist in between watering. Room-temperature water that has been filtered or allowed to sit stagnantly overnight should be used.
Details on Watering Care Watering Care
Fertilizing Care
Fertilizing Care
The boston fern should be fertilized with a balanced, all-purpose houseplant fertilizer diluted to half its normal strength. This species should be fed monthly during the active growing season between spring and early fall. It does not need to be fertilized during the dormant winter season.

What should I do if I water my Boston fern too much or too little?
Overwatered Boston fern
Despite how much it loves water, it is possible to overwater the Boston fern. This is most likely to happen if you leave your plant sitting in a pool of water or use a planter that doesn’t have drainage holes. Either of those conditions will be too wet and will prevent the roots from being able to take up nutrients and moisture. Too much moisture in the soil can also allow fungal or bacterial diseases to develop.
Wilted and yellow leaves are the initial symptoms of overwatering. Over time, the stems may droop and fall over, or begin to feel soft and mushy. However, be sure to check for other causes if you suspect your Boston fern is overwatered, since other issues can look similar and it’s difficult to give this plant too much water.
Underwatered Boston fern
Vigilance is required to keep this plant wet enough, unless you’re using a self-watering planter, meaning that many fern owners inadvertently let their plant get too dry now and then. In dry conditions, this plant can change in appearance seemingly overnight, from lush and green to brown and crispy.
In extreme cases, the plant may dry up so thoroughly that it seems there are no living fronds left. But it may still be possible to save the plant if some of the roots are still healthy. Cut off all of the dry and dead stems, then water thoroughly and return the plant to its usual location. Unless the roots are all dead, this plant can be surprisingly resilient and start putting out new fronds. It may take several months to grow back to the size it was before, but this is possible if you provide proper care in that time.

How can I water my Boston fern properly?
Your Boston fern prefers consistently moist soil that mimics its native enironment, which could mean watering as often as every one or two days. This is a plant that should not be allowed to dry out. Once the top layer of soil begins to feel even slightly dry, it’s time to water again. And don’t just give it a few drops of water: soak the soil completely until water drains out from the bottom of the pot. After the excess water has drained out, dump it so the pot isn’t sitting in a puddle. This is the best method to ensure that soil never gets too dry.
Read More more
What should I consider when watering my Boston fern?
The amount of humidity in the air around your Boston fern will influence how often you need to water it. Higher humidity in the air means less frequent watering, as evaporation is slower. Keeping this plant near a heating or cooling vent will cause it to dry out quickly, so choose a location that is protected from any type of draft. They prefer dappled and indirect sunlight and temperatures between 55-80 degrees F (13-27 degrees C) meaning that keeping these ferns in a warm and sunny spot windowsill could cause them to get dehydrated quickly.
Rainwater or distilled water is great for this plant if you have access to it, although tap water in most places also works fine. Certain minerals and chemicals in tap water can cause brown leaf tips, especially since Boston fern has very thin and delicate leaves.
Small pots can cause issues for Boston fern , because they only hold a small amount of potting medium and can dry out more quickly. It is best to allow this plant more space in the pot than many other houseplants.
Consider using a self-watering planter for Boston fern. This type of pot uses a wicking system that allows the soil to continuously soak up water from a central reservoir, meaning that the moisture level in the soil stays consistently moist. Not only does this type of pot keep you from having to constantly water your fern, but it is also quite beneficial for the roots to have a constant supply of water instead of going from dry to wet and then back again.

Underwatering
Underwatering Underwatering
Underwatering
Leaves may wilt for a variety of reasons.
Solutions: The easiest (and most obvious) way to address underwatering is to fully hydrate the plant. However, this must be done carefully. A common mistake that many gardeners make is to douse their underwatered plants with water. This can overwhelm the roots of the plant and shock its system, something that can be even more damaging than the lack of water to begin with. Instead, water thoroughly and slowly, taking breaks to let the water slowly saturate through the soil to get to the roots. Use room temperature water, as cold water might be too much of a shock. In the future, shorten the time between waterings. A good rule of thumb is to check the soil around each plant daily. If it’s dry to at least two inches down, it’s time to water. If a container plant is repeatedly drying out very quickly, repotting into a slower-draining container might be a good idea, too.
Aged yellow and dry
Aged yellow and dry Aged yellow and dry

Natural aging can cause leaves to turn yellow and dry out.
Solutions: If the yellowing and drying of leaves and flowers is a natural progression due to age, nothing can be done to slow or stop the process. Once hormones within the plant begin the process of senescence, it’s irreversible.

Underwatering
Leaves may wilt for a variety of reasons.
Overview
Overview
Underwatering plants is one of the quickest ways to kill them. This is something that most gardeners are well aware of. Unfortunately, knowing exactly how much water a plant needs can be tricky, especially considering that underwatering and overwatering present similar symptoms in plants.
Therefore, it’s important to be vigilant and attentive to each plants’ individual needs.
Symptom Analysis
Symptom Analysis
As mentioned earlier, overwatering and underwatering present similar symptoms in plants. These symptoms include poor growth, wilted leaves, defoliation, and brown leaf tips or margins. Ultimately, both underwatering and overwatering can lead to the death of a plant.
The easiest way to determine whether a plant has too much water or too little is to look at the leaves. If underwatering is the culprit, the leaves will look brown and crunchy, while if it’s overwatering, they will appear yellow or a pale green in color.
When this issue first begins, there may be no noticeable symptoms at all, particularly in hardy or drought-tolerant plants. However, they will begin to wilt once they start suffering from a lack of water. The edges of the plant’s leaves will become brown or curled. Soil pulling away from the edges of the planter is a telltale sign, or a crispy, brittle stem.
Prolonged underwatering can cause a plant’s growth to become stunted. The leaves might drop and the plant can be more susceptible to pest infestations, too.
Disease Cause
Disease Cause
Underwatering is caused by, quite simply, not watering plants often or deeply enough. There is a heightened risk of underwatering if any of these situations apply:
  • Extreme heat and dry weather (when growing outdoors)
  • Grow lights or indoor lighting that is too bright or intense for the type of plant
  • Using fast-draining growing media such as sand

Aged yellow and dry
Natural aging can cause leaves to turn yellow and dry out.
Overview
Overview
Regardless of the type of plant or where it is grown, at some point, it will begin to aged yellow and dry. This is a natural, unavoidable process that happens when the plant has completed all of the steps in its life.
Annual plants go through this process at the end of a single growing season. Perennial plants live for multiple years, if not tens or hundreds of years, but will still ultimately exhibit these symptoms.
Symptom Analysis
Symptom Analysis
When plants have progressed through their natural developmental stages and are nearing the end of their lifecycle, they begin showing signs of decline. Leaves will start to yellow and droop, and over time they turn papery brown and dry.
Once completely dry, the leaves begin to fall from the plant until the entire plant has dried out.
Disease Cause
Disease Cause
At the end of its life, genetic coding within the plant increases the production of ethylene, a phytohormone that controls senescence or natural aging and death. Cell division stops, and the plant begins catabolizing resources to use in other parts of the plant.
As this happens, the tissues begin yellow and drying until the entire plant is desiccated and perishes.

Water
Twice per week
Boston fern finds its roots in the sub-tropical and tropical rainforests, with a predilection for warm, humid climates. Hailing from regions in Africa, Central and South America, it evolved in spots with frequent rain showers, average high humidity, and shaded light. Translating this into watering protocol, boston fern craves modest, consistent moisture without being waterlogged. Droplet application, reflecting the plant's native humidity, proves optimal, interspersed with periods of slight drying to mirror natural rain cycles.
Watering Techniques
Lighting
Partial sun
The boston fern thrives under moderate solar exposure, yet can manage with minimal or generous sunlight. Its original environment entails variations of luminosity, fostering adaptability in its growth. Excessive sun can cause leaf discoloration, while too little might stagnate its development.
Best Sunlight Practices
Temperature
0 43 ℃
The boston fern is native to tropical regions and prefers temperatures between 68 to 100 ℉ (20 to 38 ℃). In the growing season, it can tolerate higher temperatures if given sufficient moisture and humidity. In cooler months, it may benefit from being moved to a warmer location or given supplemental heat.
Temp for Healthy Growth
Transplant
2-3 feet
The ideal season for transplanting boston fern is mid-spring to late spring, or mid-fall to late fall, as these seasons offer optimal growth conditions. Ensure a shady location with well-draining soil for best results. Gently tease out congested roots before transplanting if necessary, for a thriving boston fern.
Transplant Techniques
Overwinter
20 ℃
Native to sub-tropical climates, boston fern survives winter by going semi-dormant, conserving resources for spring's regrowth. However, in an indoor setting, these ferns favor stable temperate conditions, typically between 16-21°C. When boston fern faces winter, consider misting daily, keeping soil moisturized, yet well-drained, and avoiding drafty areas and temperature shifts. Boston fern's beauty thrives with just a little extra winter care.

Leaves may wilt for a variety of reasons.
Solutions: The easiest (and most obvious) way to address underwatering is to fully hydrate the plant. However, this must be done carefully. A common mistake that many gardeners make is to douse their underwatered plants with water. This can overwhelm the roots of the plant and shock its system, something that can be even more damaging than the lack of water to begin with. Instead, water thoroughly and slowly, taking breaks to let the water slowly saturate through the soil to get to the roots. Use room temperature water, as cold water might be too much of a shock. In the future, shorten the time between waterings. A good rule of thumb is to check the soil around each plant daily. If it’s dry to at least two inches down, it’s time to water. If a container plant is repeatedly drying out very quickly, repotting into a slower-draining container might be a good idea, too.

Underwatering
Leaves may wilt for a variety of reasons.
Overview
Overview
Underwatering plants is one of the quickest ways to kill them. This is something that most gardeners are well aware of. Unfortunately, knowing exactly how much water a plant needs can be tricky, especially considering that underwatering and overwatering present similar symptoms in plants.
Therefore, it’s important to be vigilant and attentive to each plants’ individual needs.
Symptom Analysis
Symptom Analysis
As mentioned earlier, overwatering and underwatering present similar symptoms in plants. These symptoms include poor growth, wilted leaves, defoliation, and brown leaf tips or margins. Ultimately, both underwatering and overwatering can lead to the death of a plant.
The easiest way to determine whether a plant has too much water or too little is to look at the leaves. If underwatering is the culprit, the leaves will look brown and crunchy, while if it’s overwatering, they will appear yellow or a pale green in color.
When this issue first begins, there may be no noticeable symptoms at all, particularly in hardy or drought-tolerant plants. However, they will begin to wilt once they start suffering from a lack of water. The edges of the plant’s leaves will become brown or curled. Soil pulling away from the edges of the planter is a telltale sign, or a crispy, brittle stem.
Prolonged underwatering can cause a plant’s growth to become stunted. The leaves might drop and the plant can be more susceptible to pest infestations, too.
Disease Cause
Disease Cause
Underwatering is caused by, quite simply, not watering plants often or deeply enough. There is a heightened risk of underwatering if any of these situations apply:
  • Extreme heat and dry weather (when growing outdoors)
  • Grow lights or indoor lighting that is too bright or intense for the type of plant
  • Using fast-draining growing media such as sand
Solutions
Solutions
The easiest (and most obvious) way to address underwatering is to fully hydrate the plant. However, this must be done carefully. A common mistake that many gardeners make is to douse their underwatered plants with water. This can overwhelm the roots of the plant and shock its system, something that can be even more damaging than the lack of water to begin with.
Instead, water thoroughly and slowly, taking breaks to let the water slowly saturate through the soil to get to the roots. Use room temperature water, as cold water might be too much of a shock.
In the future, shorten the time between waterings. A good rule of thumb is to check the soil around each plant daily. If it’s dry to at least two inches down, it’s time to water. If a container plant is repeatedly drying out very quickly, repotting into a slower-draining container might be a good idea, too.
Prevention
Prevention
Always check the soil before watering. If the top inch of soil feels moist, though not wet, the watering is perfect. If it’s dry, water it immediately. If it feels soggy, you avoid watering until it dries out a bit more.
Also, make sure the lighting is sufficient for the species. Plants grow faster and need more water when there is intense light or lots of heat. Being aware of these conditions and modifying them, if possible, is a good way to prevent underwatering. Many container plants are potted in soil mixtures mean to be well-draining. Adding materials that retain moisture, like compost or peat moss, can also prevent these symptoms.
Other tips to prevent underwatering include:
  • Choose pots with adequately-sized drainage holes
  • Avoid warm temperatures
  • Use large pots with additional soil (these take longer to dry out)
  • Avoid terracotta pots, which lose water quickly

Aged yellow and dry
Natural aging can cause leaves to turn yellow and dry out.
Overview
Overview
Regardless of the type of plant or where it is grown, at some point, it will begin to aged yellow and dry. This is a natural, unavoidable process that happens when the plant has completed all of the steps in its life.
Annual plants go through this process at the end of a single growing season. Perennial plants live for multiple years, if not tens or hundreds of years, but will still ultimately exhibit these symptoms.
Symptom Analysis
Symptom Analysis
When plants have progressed through their natural developmental stages and are nearing the end of their lifecycle, they begin showing signs of decline. Leaves will start to yellow and droop, and over time they turn papery brown and dry.
Once completely dry, the leaves begin to fall from the plant until the entire plant has dried out.
Disease Cause
Disease Cause
At the end of its life, genetic coding within the plant increases the production of ethylene, a phytohormone that controls senescence or natural aging and death. Cell division stops, and the plant begins catabolizing resources to use in other parts of the plant.
As this happens, the tissues begin yellow and drying until the entire plant is desiccated and perishes.
Solutions
Solutions
If the yellowing and drying of leaves and flowers is a natural progression due to age, nothing can be done to slow or stop the process. Once hormones within the plant begin the process of senescence, it’s irreversible.
Prevention
Prevention
Unfortunately, there is no way to prevent plants from dying of “old age.” To help prolong their life, and put off symptoms of aged yellow and dry for as long as possible, take care of them by giving them enough water, fertilizing them appropriately, and making sure they get enough sunlight.

Boston Fern Watering Instructions
Boston fern finds its roots in the sub-tropical and tropical rainforests, with a predilection for warm, humid climates. Hailing from regions in Africa, Central and South America, it evolved in spots with frequent rain showers, average high humidity, and shaded light. Translating this into watering protocol, boston fern craves modest, consistent moisture without being waterlogged. Droplet application, reflecting the plant's native humidity, proves optimal, interspersed with periods of slight drying to mirror natural rain cycles.
When Should I Water My Boston Fern?
Importance
Timely watering is crucial for maintaining the overall health and growth of boston fern. Carefully monitoring the plant can provide indicators of when it's time to water, thereby ensuring it receives just the right amount of water at the right time.
Soil Dryness
This is one of the significant indicators. If the top 1-2 inches of the soil appears dry, it's a clear sign that boston fern needs watering. Touch the soil to ascertain its moisture levels.
Leaf Drooping
Keep an eye on the foliage. If the fronds (leaves) of boston fern start drooping or losing their usual firmness, it indicates that the plant needs water.
Leaf Browning
Though boston fern is usually resistant to browning, if you notice the edges of its fronds turning brown, it's possibly due to lack of water. However, ensure to check other factors like temperature and sunlight exposure as well.
Leaf Curling
Often, when boston fern is water-deprived, the fronds start to curl up. It's a sign that your boston fern needs watering.
Risks
Watering boston fern too early when the soil is still moist can lead to waterlogging and root rot, a deterioration condition often lethal to the plant. On the other hand, watering too late when the plant has been water-starved for an extended period could cause irreversible damage such as leaf browning or curling.
How Should I Water My Boston Fern?
Plant Sensitivity and Watering Requirements
Boston fern is highly sensitive to its watering habits. It predominantly requires a high humidity environment to thrive and can be delicate when it comes to its hydration regimen. Key to its care is ensuring the soil stays damp and it is not subjected to waterlogged conditions. Overwatering or underwatering can impair its growth and overall health.
Watering Technique #1 - Bottom Watering
Bottom watering ensures the roots of boston fern get adequate moisture without causing waterlogged conditions or promoting fungal growth. To perform this method, place the boston fern pot in a shallow tray of water and allow it to soak up the water for about 30-45 minutes. Once damp, remove it from the tray and allow excess water to drain out.
Watering Technique #2 - Misting
Misting is a great method to increase humidity for boston fern. Regular misting with soft, lukewarm water can maintain the required moisture level and mimic a humid environment. A plant mister can be used to regularly mist the entire plant focusing on the fronds, but avoid over-misting which can drown the plant.
Watering Equipment - Moisture Meter and Watering Can
A moisture meter can be an invaluable tool for boston fern care. This tool measures the moisture content in the soil, alerting caregivers when it is time to water. A watering can with a long, narrow spout or a squeeze-bottle is ideal for this plant, allowing for directed watering at the base without wetting the foliage.
Areas To Focus On During Watering
During watering, focus on the soil, ensuring that it becomes damp but not water-clogged. Overwatering can lead to root rot challenges. Also, avoid wetting the center of the fern where the new fronds form. Too much moisture here can cause fungal growth.
Areas To Avoid During Watering
While boston fern enjoys a humid environment, direct, constant moisture on the fronds or foliage can lead to brown, dead fronds and fungal issues. Thus, while misting, be gentle and avoid waterlogged conditions.
How Much Water Does Boston Fern Really Need?
Introduction
Boston fern's natural habitat is the understory of warm, humid tropical forests. These conditions indicate that it prefers a consistently moist, but not waterlogged, soil environment.
Water Quantity
The optimal water quantity for boston fern hinges not just on the plant size, but also on root depth and pot size. Container size plays a significant role here - a shallow, small pot may necessitate more frequent waterings than a deeper, larger one. As a general guideline, for a standard 5-6 inch potted boston fern, watering until the top one inch soil becomes moist, and making sure any excess water can drain out, should suffice.
Signs and Indicators
The boston fern's fronds can often indicate its watering conditions. Healthily hydrated boston ferns should boast bright green, vibrant fronds. If the fronds begin to yellow, wilt or dry out, it can be a sign of under-watering. Alternatively, if the frond tips start to brown and the plant base turns soft and black, it may be a sign of overwatering or poor drainage.
Overwatering and Underwatering Risks
The dangers of overwatering boston fern can lead to root rot, preventing oxygen from reaching the roots and potentially killing the plant. Underwatering, on the other hand, deprives the plant of necessary moisture, causing it to wilt and potentially die in extreme cases.
Key Considerations: Pot Size
The size of the pot impacts watering frequency and volume. Larger pots hold more soil and moisture, conversely, smaller pots dry out quicker.
Key Considerations: Root Depth
Boston fern's root system tends to be relatively extensive, often filling out its pot. Therefore, ensure water penetrates the soil deeply to hydrate the root system thoroughly.
Key Considerations:Plant Size
Larger boston ferns may require more water to ensure their larger number of fronds receive the necessary hydration compared to smaller specimens.

Considering Hydroponics? How to Manage a Water-Grown Boston Fern?
Hydroponics Overview
Boston fern is a species of fern that can greatly benefit from hydroponic cultivation. Hydroponics is a method of growing plants in a water-based, nutrient-rich solution. It provides control over the plant's environment, facilitating faster growth and higher yields. Boston fern can thrive in this situation due to its preference for high humidity and its need for consistent watering, which is effectively addressed by hydroponics.
Best Hydroponic System
Deep Water Culture (DWC) is well-suited for growing boston fern. In this system, the plant's roots are submerged in water, providing a constant supply of oxygen, water, and nutrients. Boston fern's preference for high moisture and its tolerance for water-logged conditions make this system ideal.
Nutrient Solution
Boston fern prefers a balanced nutrient solution with a pH of 5.5-6.5 for optimal growth. Change the solution every 2 weeks to ensure boston fern is receiving all necessary nutrients. Use a complete hydroponic fertilizer, as boston fern requires many macro and micronutrients, including Nitrogen, Potassium, and Phosphorus.
Common Challenges
Common challenges when growing boston fern hydroponically may include nutrient imbalances, root rot, and inadequate light. Boston fern's leaves may turn yellow or brown if it is either over or under-fed nutrients, while soggy, dark roots can indicate root rot. Also, despite boston fern being a relatively low-light plant, it still needs enough light to photosynthesize effectively.
Monitoring Plant Health
Monitor boston fern's health by checking the fronds, roots, and color. Healthy boston fern has vibrant green, upright fronds. Brown or wilted fronds can suggest inadequate nutrients or root issues. In hydroponics, roots are often lighter, but they should not be brown or slimy. Under and over-fertilization may also affect boston fern's color.
Adjusting Hydroponic Environment
As boston fern matures, it may need adjustments in light intensity or nutrient concentrations. Young boston fern plants require less intense light and nutrient strength. As the plant matures, gradually increase both. Always monitor boston fern closely and adjust based on its response.

1. Choose the right type of artificial light: LED lights are a popular choice for indoor plant lighting because they can be customized to provide the specific wavelengths of light that your plants need.
Full sun plants need 30-50W/sq ft of artificial light, partial sun plants need 20-30W/sq ft, and full shade plants need 10-20W/sq ft.
2. Determine the appropriate distance: Place the light source 12-36 inches above the plant to mimic natural sunlight.
3. Determine the duration: Mimic the length of natural daylight hours for your plant species. most plants need 8-12 hours of light per day.

(Symptom details and solutions)
Slower or no new growth
Boston fern enters a survival mode when light conditions are poor, which leads to a halt in leaf production. As a result, the plant's growth becomes delayed or stops altogether.
Solutions
1. To optimize plant growth, shift them to increasingly sunnier spots each week until they receive 3-6 hours of direct sunlight daily, enabling gradual adaptation to changing light conditions.2. To provide additional light for your plant, consider using artificial light if it's large or not easily movable. Keep a desk or ceiling lamp on for at least 8 hours daily, or invest in professional plant grow lights for ample light.
Excessive light
Boston fern prefers shade and is sensitive to direct sunlight. Due to their intolerance to sun exposure, they easily develop symptoms of sunburn, making proper shading essential for their well-being.

(Symptom details and solutions)
Chlorosis
Chlorosis is a condition where the plant's leaves lose their green color and turn yellow. This is due to the breakdown of chlorophyll from excessive sunlight, which negatively affects the plant's ability to photosynthesize.
Sunscald
Sunscald occurs when the plant's leaves or stems are damaged by intense sunlight exposure. It appears as pale, bleached, or necrotic areas on the plant tissue and can reduce the plant's overall health.
Leaf Curling
Leaf curling is a symptom where leaves curl or twist under extreme sunlight conditions. This is a defense mechanism used by the plant to reduce its surface area exposed to sunlight, minimizing water loss and damage.
Wilting
Wilting occurs when a plant loses turgor pressure and its leaves and stems begin to droop. Overexposure to sunlight can cause wilting by increasing the plant's water loss through transpiration, making it difficult for the plant to maintain adequate hydration.
Leaf Scorching
Leaf scorching is a symptom characterized by the appearance of brown, dry, and crispy edges or patches on leaves due to excessive sunlight. This can lead to a reduction in photosynthetic capacity and overall plant health.
Solutions
1. Move your plant to the optimal position where it can receive abundant sunlight but also have some shade. An east-facing window is an ideal choice as the morning sunlight is gentler. This way, your plant can enjoy ample sunlight while reducing the risk of sunburn.2. It is recommended to trim off any completely dehydrated or withered parts of the plant.

Essentials
The boston fern is native to tropical regions and prefers temperatures between 68 to 100 ℉ (20 to 38 ℃). In the growing season, it can tolerate higher temperatures if given sufficient moisture and humidity. In cooler months, it may benefit from being moved to a warmer location or given supplemental heat.
Regional wintering strategies
Boston fern is extremely heat-loving, and any cold temperatures can cause harm to it. In the autumn, it is recommended to bring outdoor-grown Boston fern indoors and place it near a bright window, but it should be kept at a certain distance from heaters. Maintaining temperatures above {Suitable_growth_temperature_min} during winter is beneficial for plant growth. Any temperatures approaching {Tolerable_growing_temperature_min} are detrimental to the plant.
Important Symptoms
Low Temperature
Boston fern prefers warm temperatures and is not tolerant of low temperatures. It thrives best when the temperature is above {Suitable_growth_temperature_min}. During winter, it should be kept above {Tolerable_growing_temperature_min}. When the temperature falls below {Limit_growth_temperature}, the leaves may lighten in color. After frost damage, the color gradually turns brown or black, and symptoms such as wilting and drooping may occur.
Solutions
Trim off the frost-damaged parts. Immediately move indoors to a warm environment for cold protection. Choose a spot near a south-facing window to place the plant, ensuring ample sunlight. Additionally, avoid placing the plant near heaters or air conditioning vents to prevent excessive dryness in the air.
High Temperature
During summer, Boston fern should be kept below {Suitable_growth_temperature_max}. When the temperature exceeds {Tolerable_growing_temperature_max}, the color of the leaves becomes lighter, and the plant becomes more susceptible to sunburn.
Solutions
Trim away the sunburned and dried-up parts. Move the plant to a location that provides shade from the midday and afternoon sun. Water the plant in the morning and evening to keep the soil moist.
