Q.Care of Boston Ferns

Anonymous added on April 23, 2014 | Answered

At out neighborhood grocery they have Boston ferns in a display outside the SE corner of the store under a low roof overhang. They seem to be healthy and full, so I am wondering if I can hang one on my front porch. It faces west but has complete shade due to a large tree in front of it. I have never tried growing Boston ferns before but like the look of them. I would hate to kill it, but I do not have a good window in the house in which it could get adequate light inside.
