Boston Fern

Anonymous added on September 27, 2015 | Answered

My Boston fern is about 5 ft hanging. However, it has started to yellow and brown at the tips. It has gotten thinner. I know it is the wrong time to replant but I do not want to lose it over the winter. My porch is the correct temp. for it and many orchids. The smaller ferns are doing well. Please help. Thank you.
