Ferns are typically attractive, with long, graceful fronds bedecked with tiny leaves.
LIGHT: Indirect Direct. Some varieties of Nephrolepis can be trained to handle almost full sun, but most, including the Boston fern, prefer filtered, dappled light.
WATER: It is important to keep the root ball moist at all times. If your fern is sitting in somewhat of a dry area (instead of humid), mist with water frequently to keep moist.
According to ASPCA Ferns are non toxic to animals
