Watering a fern
Do you water a Boston fern in the middle or around the edges?
I like to water around the edges of the fern and then water around the center of the pot as well.
Use a long spouted watering can to reach down into the soil. Fronds can break or be damaged easily, so be gentle on the Fern.
Also once a month the entire pot can be set in a tray of water to make sure the entire plant is receiving moisture.
