The Macho Fern comes by its name quite literally for being a big, brawny fern sporting bright green fronds with bold, broad leaves; it makes its relatives (such as the Boston Fern) look little by comparison.
This fern variety does well in a shaded or partially shaded (morning sun and afternoon shade) outdoors spot. While it's not a delicate plant, it looks best when protected from strong, drying winds. Water as the top inch or so of your potting soil mix dries, which may mean watering it every day during the hottest parts of summer. Prune your macho fern to remove old, faded fronds.
Indoors, you can grow macho fern in low, medium, or bright light, although you will need to protect it from direct sunlight. Water your Macho Fern enough to keep the potting mix moist, but never wet or soggy. Prune only to remove old fronds that turn brown. When grown indoors as a low-fuss houseplant, macho fern will help clean the air of harmful environmental toxins.
