Key information

Boston Ferns (Nephrolepis exaltata), are known for their delicate, feathery fronds that arch gracefully, giving the plant an elegant appearance. The fronds are made up of small leaflets, and the overall plant has a lush and bushy growth habit. At Soto we love the Boston fern in our indoor pot kits or in a pot on a sideboard for interesting texture.

Boston Ferns prefer bright, indirect light. While they can tolerate some shade, avoid placing them in direct sunlight, as it can scorch their delicate fronds.

Watering
Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged

Water when the top inch of the soil feels slightly dry.

The Boston Fern, also known as Nephrolepis exaltata, is native to tropical and subtropical regions, including Florida, Mexico, and South America. 

The Boston Fern has been a popular houseplant for many years. Its use in indoor gardening can be traced back to the 19th century. The fern gained particular popularity during the Victorian era, when indoor plants became fashionable, and elaborate ferneries were created.

Over time, various cultivars and varieties of the Boston Fern have been developed, each with its unique characteristics. 

Boston Ferns remain a classic choice for indoor and shaded outdoor environments due to their beauty and relatively easy care.
