BOSTON FERN - The plant’s benefits go beyond the aesthetic: the Boston fern acts as a natural humidifier, absorbing common air pollutants and releasing water vapor.    The best way to care for your fern is to simulate its native tropical woodland. Hang it by an east or north-facing window as ferns like moderate indirect light. Water very often and keep the soil moist but not soggy. Mist frond

"Actually I keep mine in the same pots they come in, every other day they get submerged into a 5 gallon bucket filled with 1/2 cup of Epson salts & 3 gallons of regular water until the soil stops bubbling, then they are hung up to drip dry... always have ferns that are dark green, glossy, and 3x3 by September from ferns that start out with 7 fronds in May..."

Would be good on my front porch: Another good combination for a shady site: Macho fern, asparagus fern (Asparagus sprengeri), Red Bull begonia, Etna begonia, Yellow Ripple ivy and Mini Ester ivy. Planted in the Flower Basket with an AquaSav liner

Clever idea for hanging Boston ferns: Leave them in their pots and snip the hangers off. Then just place them in the hanging planters with coco liners. This makes is super easy to remove them in the late fall, and you can reuse the liners next year. A great idea from Lesley Graham on The Home Depot Blog. || @lesleywgraham
