Botanical name: Nephrolepis exaltata 

Common name: Boston fern

Kingdom: Plantae

Family: Nephrolepidaceae

Genus: Nephrolepis

Origin: Central & South America, Florida, West Indies, Africa

Light:  Moderate to bright indirect light 

 Water: Do not water on the middle top of fern. Ferns despise drying out. Only allow the top 1/4 inch of the top soil to dry. Water little, but frequent around every 4 to 5 days to top up moisture levels. Doing a top up watering technique you should not have the water coming through the bottom or this can lead to overwatering. However if you have let the fern dry out around 1/2 then do a thorough watering. It is a bit risky to let then dry out too much. Humidifiers help as well as grouping plants to raise the humidity in immediate area.

Fertilizer: With active growth (even in winter) we recommend using a fertilizer based for foliage plants like Dynagro foliage pro, Gaia green 444 or fish fertilizer.

Pet Friendly: Yes
