Features & Attributes
Boston Fern's attractive glossy ferny pinnately compound leaves remain forest green in color with hints of light green throughout the year. The flowers are not ornamentally significant.
This is a dense herbaceous evergreen houseplant with a shapely form and gracefully arching foliage. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other indoor plants with less refined foliage. This plant should not require much pruning, except when necessary to keep it looking its best.
Planting & Growing
When grown indoors, Boston Fern can be expected to grow to be about 24 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 24 inches. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 20 years. This houseplant performs well in both bright or indirect sunlight and strong artificial light, and can therefore be situated in almost any well-lit room or location. It does best in average to evenly moist soil, but will not tolerate standing water. The surface of the soil shouldn't be allowed to dry out completely, and so you should expect to water this plant once and possibly even twice each week. Be aware that your particular watering schedule may vary depending on its location in the room, the pot size, plant size and other conditions; if in doubt, ask one of our experts in the store for advice. It is not particular as to soil pH, but grows best in rich soil.
This plant is ideal used outdoors to enhance porches, patios and outdoor living spaces. Prefers shade and should be brought indoors before the threat of frost.
