If you plan on growing your Kimberly Queen fern indoors, it needs to receive medium light and humidity throughout the day. To increase the moisture in the air you can group your other houseplants with the Kimberly fern as well as adding a small humidifier nearby. If you see the fern starting to turn brown this means the humidity is too low. In terms of temperature, it does not do well in chilly environments. What is great is that this fern does not require much fertilizer, and you can fertilize it 1-2 times a year. However, if you are interested in having your Kimberly fern grow quicker, feeding it more frequently will help. Regarding watering your plant, wait until a couple of inches of the soil is dry before watering. If the leaves turn pale green it means the fern is thirsty, and if it becomes crispy or brown it is being over watered.
