Outdoor ferns require less attention than indoor ones. However, it is worth it because plants in baskets and hanging ferns, in particular, can reshape the space and make it more dynamic. Same with the patio, in case you decide to put hanging ferns there. But first, choose the most suitable variety for baskets – like Kimberly Queen Ferns or Boston Ferns. The latter is especially perfect for hanging pots due to its weeping nature. Secondly, you must follow some rules if you want your fern to thrive in such an environment. Ensure that plants’ water, light, or fertilizer needs are fulfilled. Most ferns prefer moisture and shade. Fertilizing monthly is also recommended, but it depends on the fern type.
Moisture. You have to prevent the complete drying of the soil between waterings. In summer, ferns prefer more frequent irrigation than in colder months.
Pot. Choose a container with drainage holes for your hanging fern to prevent waterlogging.
Fertilizing. Remember to never feed the plant if the substrate is completely dry. Use fertilizer on moderately moist soil every warm season. The best type of fertilizer for ferns should be nutrient-rich and water-soluble.
Light. Bright indirect light is perfect for most ferns.
Overwintering. Ferns’ warmth-loving nature won’t let them spend winter outside. You can overwinter your fern by pruning the foliage and placing the plant in a cool area (garage or basement).
If you decide to decorate your porch with a fern beauty in the hanging basket, here is some advice for you:
Choose the fern you like best. Some varieties will look better in hanging baskets than others.
Find a suitable planter. This is also important because the wrong pot can cause problems like waterlogging.
Hanging fern care. Provide your plant with needed conditions if you want it to thrive.
Its weeping nature is one reason this plant is perfect for hanging baskets! Boston Fern is extremely popular as a houseplant because it is easy to take care of.
