Choose a planter that has drainage holes and always repot them in the spring season. If your Boston ferns start growing a lot of roots in the planter, then you may repot it.

Use the Perfect Soil

Use well-draining soil mixed with perlite and peat moss as it is the best mixture for your Ferns. Fertilise once a month and your potted buddy will thank you!
