yellowing fronds on boston fern

Zone 8 | 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?

Yes - over-watering could definitely cause the yellowing you are seeing on your Boston fern. Improper lighting, temperature and humidity could also be to blame - or it may just need to be repotted. I recommend that you review the article below and make amendments where necessary:
