Yellowing Fronds on Boston Fern

efaye added on May 17, 2015 | Answered

What would cause yellowing on the tips of fronds of a Boston fern? I have 2 Boston ferns in the same location on my patio. One is flourishing while the other is beginning to show yellowing on the tips of the fronds. Is too much water the problem?
