Boston Fern Plant

Nephrolepis exaltataSword Fern, Ferns

Boston Ferns are native to tropical forests and swamp areas around the world. These ferns are especially prevalent in Florida, Mexico, Africa, Central and South America, and Polynesia. The wide- spreading Boston Fern with beautiful arching fronds usually does best in hanging baskets. The fronds or leaves of this fern can be as long as 2-3 feet and 4-6 inches in width. Each Boston Fern frond has small leaflets (pinnae) on either side of a midrib, and the leaflets have slightly serrated edges. A Boston Fern does a great job removing formaldehyde from the air.
