Nephrolepis Green Moment 'Boston Fern' 12cm Pot
One of the most well-known indoor plants, Nephrolepis exaltata, known more commonly as the sword fern or Boston fern, is an evergreen, perennial houseplant with graceful, arching fronds that are a delicate green.
Evergreen, 'Green Moment' is slightly darker and retains its wonderful colour all year with less browning and die-back than other varieties offered for sale, making it a decorative and striking plant to decorate your home - perfect to give as a gift or a housewarming present, and spectacular in a hanging basket or pot where it can cascade over the edges.
This favourite of Victorian plant hunters is not just a pretty face either - gardeners have known for years that houseplants are great features for the home, helping you to get a good, restful night's sleep, and now we know why. Research by NASA has shown that one of their most useful features is their ability to keep the air inside your home clean, removing toxins such as formaldehyde and benzene, and giving out valuable oxygen at night.
Easy to grow and look after, your Boston Fern loves a humid atmosphere so is perfect for a bathroom or kitchen where it will thrive in a shady part of a brightly lit room. Supplied as an established plant in a 12cm pot, ready to place where you need it!
Even if you can't place your Boston fern in a humid atmosphere like your bathroom you can still grow it successfully; just mist the leaves regularly with water and place the pot on a tray of damp clay pebbles.
Aftercare Advice for your Green Moment Boston fern:
- Keep the compost moist (but not waterlogged) at all times, except winter when plants are dormant, and water can be cut down (but do not allow to dry out so that the compost shrinks from the side of the pot)
- Keep your fern at 18-25°C
- Feed with a general-purpose plant food once a month
- When watering, pour water around the sides of the plant, as pouring it the middle can cause rotting of the crown
