Answer: Your macho fern is frost tender and will die down with the first frost. You didn't mention where you live so I don't know if you're gardening in a frost free area. If so, you can plant it outdoors; if your garden regularly gets frost, the plant will die, even in a protected area. It will grow in filtered sun but the leaves will burn if the temperatures get too hot, even if it is growing in the shade. Because it is so sensitive to heat and cold and dry air it is usually sold as a houseplant.
Hope this answers all your questions!
