I've never had the appropriate spot to grow a Boston Fern - they need
perfect everything! But it is natural for the fern to lose fronds
periodically. New fiddleheads pop up right behind them. Unless you are
losing a majority of fronds and/or the plant looks sick. Don't worry
Could it be possible that you are giving it too much water? I don't know
what the right amount would be, but you don't want the fern to rot. >
