Bernie experienced a great comeback with the Greg app. I didn’t realize how fickle ferns could be and I often overwatered it. It browned easily and was about to be a goner but then Greg to the resc…
This is the ugliest fern I’ve ever seen! Slow growing, won’t get full and big. It doesn’t like anywhere I put it. Truly considered throwing it in the compost.
Gorgeous plant that LOVES humidity, apparently easy to propagate but I’ve never tried. An easier fern for those who are interested!
Beautiful plant to add to any living space. I want more.
The leaves break off a lot and can make a mess

How to care for Boston Fern
Boston Fern needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Boston Fern may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Select your city to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Boston Fern in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Boston Fern after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
