Like most ferns, the Boston fern loves shade, therefore it does great inside as a houseplant. Boston ferns prefer medium to bright indirect light. They also like high humidity, therefore it is a good idea to fill its saucer full of pebbles and water to give it the humidity it needs, Mist it with water from a spray bottle as often as possible. Keep the ferns soil moist but not wet. The Boston fern is a light feeder and therefore only needs to be fed every 3 to 4 months. This is a great plant for the home with curious pets.
