Bringing Ferns Inside for the Winter

I have 2 big Boston ferns hanging outside that will need to be brought in for the winter. How can I keep the leaves from falling off and keep it alive through the winter?

I've had good luck with the following strategy.

1. Keep the fern in a sunny room away from the heater vent.

2. Every other week or so, hang them in your bathroom after a steamy shower.

Hope this helps

Ferns take in alot of water from the air around them. I would mist them lightly every day as winter air in a home is extremely dry.
