    I was afraid when I saw them arriving in the mail and how small they were that they wouldn't make it, I quickly judged and boy am I wrong. They are thriving and looking great! Will never early judge again.

Boston Fern - Nephrolepis exaltata

 The Boston Fern (Nephrolepis exaltata) thrives year-round in U.S.D.A. hardiness zones 10 through 12. At maturity, it can achieve both the height and width of three feet as it forms elegant long fronds developing from a central clump. The plant requires partial to full shade or filtered light.

The beauty of this old-fashioned botanical is in its option grown as a lush houseplant or outdoors in container gardening. The Boston fern has been providing striking appeal as a popular indoor plant since the Victorian era. The best place to set one down is right by a window that receives indirect light or to hang it in a similar location.

Watering correctly is the most critical aspect of maintaining a healthy, bright green Boston fern. It's a thirsty plant that likes its moisture, and nursery experts recommend that its soil remain damp. Misting the fern a couple of times a week will also provide humidity and keep the delicate fronds from turning yellow.

One way to determine if a Boston fern needs water is by picking up its container. If the pot feels heavy or full, then the plant is beautiful. If the container feels light, then watering is due. The fern can also be set on a pebble tray filled with water. Ensure, however, that the pot does not sit in standing water.

If the fern is grown outdoors in the summer, then the plant will thrive best with a double watering routine, once during the morning and again in the evening.

A little trimming can be performed at any time of the year, and the Boston fern can benefit from pruning via sharp scissors. It's advised to avoid cropping at the top of the greenery. Instead, trimming off the side fronds located at the base will fortify the plant and eliminate dull, leggy growth.

The Boston fern enhances any interior or exterior with classic beauty.

Boston Fern will grow well in well-drained soils.
