Repotting Boston Fern Questions

11 years ago

Hello, I'm a houseplant novice.

I bought this Boston Fern at Lowe's last July. It has more then doubled in size and seems to be very happy on my dining room table.

Last week I noticed it's roots starting to poke through the bottom of the pot and I'm wondering if it might be time to repot? I don't really want it to get much bigger and I've read that bigger pot = bigger fern.

So, will putting it back in the same size pot with fresh soil be enough to keep it healthy? And can I get away with not dividing it? I'm afraid I'll mess it up...
