The Boston fern Nephrolepis exaltata ‘Bostoniensis’) is one cultivar of a fern species that can grow as tall as 7 feet in its native habitat. ‘Bosoniensis’ is a more demure variety, a well-known fern that has been long admired for its desirable traits as a houseplant. Boston ferns are attractive specimens with long, graceful fronds bedecked with tiny leaves. It is a relatively tough, easy to propagate fern that has a higher tolerance for light and dry conditions than other species. An added bonus is that Boston ferns can be displayed in any number of ways, including on pedestals, in hanging baskets, as part of a grouping, or as lush specimen plants on the right windowsill.
Boston fern is relatively trouble-free, but it can occasionally suffer from some of the same problems common to many indoor plants, including scale, mealybugs, and white flies. When grown outdoors, slugs can be a problem.
As hardy as this fern is, you still need to give it the proper care. Following a few simple growing tips will help guarantee a beautiful and vibrant houseplant you can be proud of.
