outside hanging Boston fern

I’ve either let my fern get too dry, or maybe too much sun, but one of my ferns has leaves coming up out of the center turning brown and it’s not as lush as the other one. How can I fix it? I hang them on my back patio. One side gets more sun than the other but I switch them every  time  I watered them. How can I get it healthy again? Thanks
