Product Information

One of the most well-known indoor plants, Nephrolepis exaltata, known more commonly as the sword fern or Boston fern, is an evergreen, perennial houseplant with graceful, arching fronds that are a delicate green.

Evergreen, 'Sonata' is bright green and retains its wonderful colour all year, making it a decorative and striking plant to decorate your home - perfect to give as a gift or a housewarming present, and spectacular in its hanging basket where it cascades over the edges.

This favourite of Victorian plant hunters is not just a pretty face either - gardeners have known for years that houseplants are great features for the home, helping you to get a good, restful night's sleep, and now we know why.

Top Tips

Even if you can't place your Boston fern in a humid atmosphere like your bathroom you can still grow it successfully, just mist the leaves regularly with water and place the pot on a tray of damp clay pebbles.

Care Information

Aftercare Advice for your Green Moment Boston fern:

  • Keep the compost moist (but not waterlogged) at all times except winter when plants are dormant, and water can be cut down (but do not allow to dry out so that the compost shrinks from the side of the pot).
  • If you can't place it in a humid atmosphere like your bathroom you can still grow this plant, just mist the leaves regularly with water and or place the pot on a tray of damp pebbles.
  • Keep your fern at 18-25C.
  • Feed with a general-purpose plant food once a month.
  • When watering, pour water around the sides of the plant, as pouring it the middle can cause rotting of the crown.
