Size (Can grow to)
The Nephrolepis exaltata is native to Asia and Australia. This variety is commonly called Boston Fern, they are an attractive fern with long, gracefully drooping fronds bedecked with tiny leaves. The Nephrolepis exaltata are relatively tough ferns with a higher tolerance for light than other species and prefer a bright light position and will tolerate some full sun. The Boston Fern requires moist soil all year round but doesn't light over watering so reduce watering in winter. Finally, they can be used in a number of situations, including pedestals, hanging baskets, grouping or lush specimen plants on the right windowsill. They don't appreciate being blasted by air from outlets or vents. Remove dead fronds and occasionally rotate to keep it growing evenly.
We also grow the Nephrolepis exaltata Boston Fern as part of our Hanging Basket Range.
