"Boston ferns", "Nephrolepis exaltata" or "Boston Ivy", are one of the most well-known of the Fern family and are often admired for their desirable traits as a houseplant.
Boston Ferns can be displayed in any number of ways in the home, including on shelving, in hanging baskets, or even as lush specimen plants on the right windowsill.
They are relatively easy to care for however, figuring out what this fern likes, is fundamental to keeping it in good nick.
- They enjoy a cool place indoors away from central heating and direct sunlight.
- Keep their compost to remain damp, so water once per week.
- If some of the leaf fronds are a little brown, run your fingers through them gently and give it a little comb. They will love you in return with beautiful fresh fronds and that delicate sweet Boston Fern aroma.
