Boston Ferns Turning Brown

Anonymous added on July 1, 2011 | Answered

Some of the fronds on my Boston ferns are turning brown in places, usually at the ends but some in the middle of the frond. I have them on my back porch. They receive the morning sun. I am watering them about every other day. I water them by placing them in a 10 gallon bucket. A nursery man told me to water them by placing the pot in water. He said they do not like their leaves (fronds) to get wet. I am fertilizing my ferns about once a week with Miracid. What should I do to prevent the fronds from turning brown?
