Hi,

We just moved a hanging fern from the outside into our house. It is constantly shedding leaves. It looks like a Boston fern, but I'm not sure.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi and welcome Alan.

Could it possibly getting too much sun? Was it facing southern exposure?

Thanks for all the help.

It did not get too much sun. I think that the move indoors is the main cause of the shedding. I'll cutting it back and give it some time.
