How do I get rid of musky smell from Boston fern?
I bought a new Boston Fern a week ago . It was cold outside but I brought it home in a warm car. I put it in my hall . It does not get sun in that spot. It about 3 days the stems smelled awful and it was losing leaves.
I moved it to my dining where it will get morning sun.
I would like to save it. Any suggestions?

It might be better if you let it get the air all around it, such as a hanging basket maybe- don't forget to keep it damp too.
Take it outside for a little while. People have suggested that it took in a lot of bad air when it came inside so it just needs to purge. You could hang it on the shower rod for a little while with the window cracked, that might help it.
they need a VERY HIGH Humidity to thrive indoors; needs light, but not direct sun except very early in the a.m.
IF the plant froze before you purchased it ... some of the roots may still be okay; just deal with the shedding, cut back fronds that are dead and hope something survives; https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/boston-fern/overwintering-boston-ferns.htm
the 'musty' odor may be from 'rotting' roots if the plant had 'cold damage' prior to purchase.
