Nephrolepis exaltata 'Bostoniensis'

This fern, at times called the Sword Fern, is native to Florida, West Indies, Mexico, Central America, South America, Polynesia and Africa. It is evergreen, and the easiest fern to grow indoors, requiring little care.

Generally sword-shaped fronds have shallow toothed to entire pinnae. Fronds initially grow upward but arch gracefully with age.

Suitable for elevated pots, pedestals or hanging baskets, they will thrive well in high humidity locations like bathrooms.
