Learn More About Boston Fern

Collapsible content

What is the Boston Fern Known For?

The Boston Fern is best known for its lush, feather-like fronds that droop gracefully, creating a natural curtain of green. It's one of the most popular fern varieties for indoor settings and is celebrated for its air-purifying qualities.

What Is the History of the Boston Fern?

The Boston Fern has its roots in humid forests and swampy areas. Though originally a native of tropical and subtropical regions, it gained its name after becoming a popular decorative houseplant in Boston, Massachusetts, during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Where Does the Boston Fern Originate?

The Boston Fern is native to tropical and subtropical regions in South America, Central America, and the Caribbean. These ferns are well-adapted to humid conditions, which is why they make excellent houseplants for well-lit bathrooms or kitchens.

How Do You Care for a Boston Fern?

Boston Ferns thrive in indirect, moderate light and high humidity. Water the plant regularly to keep the soil evenly moist but not soggy. Misting the fronds can also help maintain humidity levels. During the growing season, apply a balanced liquid fertiliser every month to keep the fern looking its best.

Are Boston Fern Toxic to Pets?

Good news for pet owners: Boston Ferns are non-toxic to both cats and dogs. This makes them an excellent choice for households with pets. However, it's always a good idea to keep any plant out of reach of curious pets to avoid any accidental ingestion or damage to the plant.

    Great experience and an amazing selection of plants to select from. Delivery was also spot on and the plants were well wrapped/covered. The only critism is that some of the plants weren't in the best condition with regards to being trimmed and a good shape, specifically a Monkey Mask and a Boston Fern. Personally I put this down to pick of the bunch but depends what plants you get. Overall, great experience and amazing additions to the house, will be buying again for sure.
