Description

Boston Ferns is the most popular type of fern you will come across.

The Boston Fern (Nephrolepis exaltata 'Bostoniensis') has its origins in humid climates like South America and Florida, but through compelling historical events, it found its way to New England. It is also known as Boston Sword Fern, the Tuber Ladder Fern, and the Fishbone Fern. The leaves of this fern are triangular and emerge from fronds that can measure up to 250 cm in length. The serrated leaf patterns in adult plants look like steak knife edges or the bone patterns of fish. This is an extremely weather-resistant fern, which explains how it began thriving in the North Atlantic climate more than a century ago. Its winter dormancy phase is quickly replaced by bright, vivid, waxy, and ornate fronds in the spring. It propagates promptly in outdoor areas.

As a houseplant, Boston Fern is easily sustained through misting-style watering regimens.

 Each leaf stem, or frond, has leaflets that grow outward in a symmetrical pattern. The leaves are almost frilly like, and they hang long which is why they are so admired. These fronds grow out from the central plant upward then lean toward the ground as they get older. This is why this fern is a classic beauty; they make a great addition to outdoor gardens or as an indoor plant. The Boston fern is the plant most people would use as decoration on their back deck this fern will also remove pollutants from the air if planted indoors.This foliage plant makes a great complement to other flowering plants. It’s important to keep in mind that this is a fern and like other ferns. It is best to keep these plants wet, so they will need water and misting frequently.

 BOSTON FERNS ARE VERY CLOSELY RELATE TO THE SWORD FERNS DUE TO THEIR SIZE AND LOOK which is native to Florida.

 They are non-toxic and are cat-friendly. They are usually used as a potted plant for indoor gardening but will also be used along with a garden path or to line a flower bed. These ferns typically look their best if placed on top of a stand or in a hanging basket, but can also be planted in your garden along with other shade-loving plants.
