Unlike the Boston, Dallas, or Fluffy Ruffle ferns, the Kimberly Queen is more compact, tidier, easier to care for and best of all it can handle full sun.
A Kimberly queen fern does well in medium light to full sun. Like a Boston fern, hanging one in front of a window with a northern exposure provides it with enough light to grow well, but not so much that the leaves lose their vibrant green color.
Allow the top 25%-35% of the soil to dry-out before watering. If it is outside in the sun it will need to be watered well every day. The long fronds (leaves) may even turn a pale green when the fern needs water. Crispy brown fronds, especially in the center of the fern, mean the plant is over-watered. Avoid watering with “hard water,” or water that has a lot of salt, fluorine, or chlorine in it if it has gotten too dry recently.
