Boston Fern (Nephrolepis exalta)

The Nephrolepis exaltata is native to Asia and Australia. This varity 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.

*Pot sold separately.

*As plants are natural products, form, pattern and colour will vary slightly.

*Larger pot sizes (Size 4 and above) are ONLY available for Local Pickup or Local Delivery within 5km of our stores.
