RE: keeping boston ferns alive in winter in basement

I'm not sure what your basement accommodations are, but my boston fern doesn't seem to mind handling temps down to the 50s, and it LOVES its florescent light when I bring it inside... It drops a few leaves initially, but then actually seems to get even more full and fluffy than outside... You can buy a cheap florescent lamp at home depot...
