Boston fern - from outdoors to in?

Boston fern - from outdoors to in?
Posted by Shirley from northeast Flori on 2007-09-16 02:06:00

The previous owner of my house loved Boston ferns, and there several very large pots, as well as in-ground, in the front and back yards. I want more greenery in the house. My questions:
1) If I bring an outdoor Boston fern indoors, will I also bring in pests with it?
2) Is Boston fern toxic to cats?

Thank you,
Shirley
