About This Product

Enjoy the beauty of Boston Fern from Costa Farms, which features solid, green foliage and is fantastic for large spaces. Not only are Boston Ferns striking, they help purify the air by removing unhealthy organic compounds. Grow Boston Fern in bright, indirect sunlight. Water it about once a week with approximately 2-3 cups. Ensure excess water drains. Adjust as needed for your environment. Never let Boston Fern sit in water or saturated soil. When shipped, its about 16 in.es tall, measured from the bottom of the pot to the top of the plant. Boston Fern ships in a black, 10 in. grower pot inside a hanging basket. To help with water drainage, this container does have holes. Boston Fern is generally a slow grower, depending on environment and care provided. Boost growth in Spring and Summer with a fertilizer labeled for potted plants following the products instructions. When Boston Fern outgrows its current container, repot by gently removing it from its container and placing it in a 2 in. wider container. Fill with potting mix and water thoroughly. Hardy outdoors in USDA Zones 9-10. Exposure to the sap of this plant may cause discomfort to individuals with a sensitivity to it upon contact. Grown for ornamental purposes and not intended for human or animal consumption.

      Answer This Question

      A:  I was reading it shouldn´t be much bigger,only like an inch or so.

      by|May 7, 2022

        A:  Find another pot 2 inches bigger than the one is in now tap the sides. Slowly start pulling it out be careful not to damage the plant. Make sure it’s roots are loose and they look healthy. I wouldn’t try to separate like I did. The other one never survived. Keep it how it is, bigger pot pot is a good idea. Good luck. It’s a gorgeous fern.

                Answer This Question

                A:  Yes , you can trim them low and wait for the new leaves to start growing. It will take time but they can be revived.

                  A:  Shock will stunt a fern for sure and cold snowy weather is a shock to them. I would bring it in, and get some grow lights on it, and let the new growth come back and fill in. It might take a while but with the warm weather coming it might fill in rather quickly. When it gets warm put it in sunlight and try to keep it in a humid location. You may lose a number of fronds from the cold, but new growth should happen if it wasn't left out too long.

                  Delivery and ordering went well, but the plants themselves were iffy. Some were dying, and some had large spots of just soil.

                    nice fern
                    I felt rediculous buying a fern online. But the stores didn’t have any good ferns near me. When the box arrived, I was shock to see how beautiful it was. It did have a couple tiny black tip on leaves, but it was worth buying.

                      Fluffy and alive!
                      I was a little afraid to order online as i read the negative reviews, but i was super happy when i received it! It’s huge but a little dry, understandable considering the hot weather. After drinking lots of water, it looks so beautiful now! I am considering buying another one but haven’t decided where to put it as it is so large lol
