Clever idea for hanging Boston ferns. Leave them in their pots and snipped the hangers off. Then just place them in the hanging planters with coco liners. This makes is super easy to remove them in the late fall, and you can reuse the liners next year. A great idea from Lesley Graham on The Home Depot Blog. || @lesleywgraham
BOSTON FERN - The plant’s benefits go beyond the aesthetic: the Boston fern acts as a natural humidifier, absorbing common air pollutants and releasing water vapor. The best way to care for your fern is to simulate its native tropical woodland. Hang it by an east or north-facing window as ferns like moderate indirect light. Water very often and keep the soil moist but not soggy. Mist frond
How to Grow Lush Ferns - submerge in water with Epsom Salts - via The Room Journal - also, add a section of chain between the ceiling hook and the pot hook so the fern hangs lower. It looks so much better!
Keep the fern in the same pots they come in, every other day submerge them in a 5 gallon bucket filled with 1/2 cup of epson salts amp; 3 gallons of regular water until the soil stops bubbling, then hang up to drip dry... ferns will be dark green, glossy, and 3x3 by September from ferns that start out with 7 fronds in May.
