Overgrown Boston Fern...repotting advice?
I just brought my Boston Fern in from it's summer outdoors and it is really too large now. I need to divide it and put it in 2 smaller containers. I was thinking that while I was at it, I might cut the whole thing back to the ground and let it regrow in the house. Mainly because some of the outter fronds are looking a little ratty even though the inner ones look fresh and new. I also thought that after wrestling with it to divide it, it's not going to look very good.
Any advice on how to do this? Would clay pots be the best? Should I be fertilizing it in a couple of weeks once it settles in it's pot?
Also, best care I can give it? Does everyone mist these daily in the low humidity when the heat is on to keep the tips from turning brown?
Thank you :-) pm2
