Nephrolepis exaltata, known more commonly as the Boston fern prefers a wet, hot, and not too bright environment. 
Happy in partial shade or a brighter spot. 
Moisture loving. Check the soil regularly and if dry, water away!
The Boston Fern loves a good mist - do it once a week or place her in a humid bathroom. 
Brown fronds are a sign of too dry conditions or that someone is running their hands over them - they don't like that much!
