About This Product

Grown by United Nursery, the live Boston Fern, has been a favorite indoor and outdoor plant for over a century because of its versatility and lush green foliage. While fern plants are one of the most common houseplant species, the Boston Fern is the most popular and most widely grown variety of all fern species. This plant is especially well-liked by plant enthusiasts because of its ability to tolerate low light levels. The leaves tend to be dark green on the upper surface and lighter in color on the lower surface. The elegant, long-leafed Boston fern has narrow, light green pinnae with a broad creamy white midrib. Boston fern is also called ladder fern and is so-called because of the way each frond has separate leaflets which are joined by its long, arching midrib. Their lush appearance and ease of care make them a good choice for hanging baskets, garden containers or as a ground cover for shady spots. This plant will fill your rooms with greenery and help bring a touch of the outdoors inside. Boston ferns have a natural, graceful look and can be enjoyed as floor plants, hanging plants and table plants. These hanging basket plants are great for indoor and outdoor display. The Boston fern live plants tropical foliage is sure to add greenery to any living space.

Answer This Question

A:  Laura, you have the option of keeping a Boston Fern inside or outside or both as I do. I keep mine outside during the summer months (May through October) on my front porch and then bring it inside during the winter months. I place it near my fireplace in my livingroom. The fern does well in both environments. I live in Vermont. I suppose the fern starts its life off in a greenhouse type structure that could potentially have bugs around. Then the fern would be sold off to the various stores, ie. Home Depot, that sell them to the public. So, who knows if the fern has a bug or two wherever it is transported/lives in its early life. However, I've never had a problem with bugs with my fern and it lives outside half the year. I transplant mine in a clean, large planter inside with fresh soil and then cover the top soil with pebble stones to stop mites/small flies from living on soil bed. So far so good! They can grow very big inside and then you have the option of dividing the plant in half or quarters for future plantings inside or outside...hope this helps.

              Hello Ersila
              Sorry to hear about your fern. Ferns do best in a well lit room or porch and away from direct sunlight. These plants are tolerant and can come back if located in the correct location and given plenty of water. If you are trying to nurse the plant back to health, can we suggest moving it to a new location and give plenty of water (take outdoor and drench in plenty of water).
