Boston Fern

The Boston Fern is very popular.

It displays agile leaves that curve over extensively and is 3 feet long when it is full-grown. It is a non-flowering plant. In its native environment, it has been known to grow to 7' tall. It is native to Florida, Africa, South America, Polynesia, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America. The foliage has stalks that are tough and long, with many tiny leaves on it. The common names for the Boston Fern are Bostoniensis and Nephrolepis Exaltata. Winter hardy to USDA Zones 10-12. It grows in well-drained soils, humusy, moist and shady areas with just a small amount of the sun. It is an evergreen plant, and the growth rate is six weeks.

It requires a small amount of water. Between the Autumn and late winter, it should be watered less frequently.

Put the Boston Fern on small stones on a tray that is wet and humid. A minute amount of fertilizer may be applied on a monthly basis from Spring to early Autumn. If the soil is dry, the Boston Fern will shed fronds. If this happens, regenerate the plant by cutting the fronds back to 2 inches. In the winter when the humidity is low, the tips of the branch may become brown. Plant the Boston Fern, in a large pot and use a mixture of sand, garden earth, and moss. The roots of the plant should be able to stay in the container with the roots laying comfortably. The sources should be near the holes in the bottom of the post. Make sure there is enough soil in the pot when the fern is placed in it. Fill the bowl with the ground.

During the months when the time is warm, the fern can be placed on the patio, balcony, or the porch. It should be taken inside when the temperature reaches 10 degrees Celsius, or 50 degrees Fahrenheit. If the temperature is below 4 degrees Celsius or 40 degrees Fahrenheit, do not leave the plant outside.
