Description How to Grow Delivery

Boston fern is one of the easiest houseplant ferns to grow, yet oozes elegance and tropical calm. Nephrolepis exaltata forms a lush clump of narrow fronds that gracefully arch over the sides of the stylish and contemporary basket pot, whose natural tones perfectly complement the bright green foliage. Also a fantastic air-purifier and a pet-safe houseplant, this popular and reliable fern will bring peaceful tranquillity to any room. RHS Award of Garden Merit.


1 x 15cm Potted Plant In Round Basket (KF1143)

Grow Boston fern in a bright spot away from direct sunlight. Keep the compost moist (but not waterlogged) at all times, though watering can be reduced slightly in winter. Nephrolepis exaltata thrives in a humid atmosphere, so steamy bathrooms are ideal. If not, mist the leaves regularly or place the pot on pebbles in a shallow tray of water. As the water evaporates it humidifies the air around the plant. Maintain temperatures between 10 and 25°C.
