Boston Fern

With their long frilly fonds that drapes down from the middle Boston ferns are one of the most popular indoor ferns. They look beautiful hanging from a basket or sitting on a shelfon pedestals cascading down. The added benefit of this plant is that it also cleans the air by removing toxins and pollutants. They like regular misting so the fonds don’t dry out and they also don’t like windy areas. They need a bit of extra TLC but as far as ferns are concern, this is a easy care fern. For the extra care they will provide you with luscious greenery to brighten up your home.

When we refer to “Boston Ferns,” we could actually mean a number of different types of ferns. Boston fern is the general name for a number of varieties of fern, including:

  • Delilah Boston Fern
  • Compact Boston Fern
  • Florida Ruffle Boston Fern
  • Orlando Fern

In fact, some consider the lemon button fern that we already went over to be classified as a Boston fern (or at least as a very close relative!).

Like the Lemon Button, various varieties of this plant are so popular because of their relatively compact size as well as how easy they are to care for. They’re also quite popular for their natural ability to clean the air: research has shown that they can reduce airborne pollutants and toxins in your home.

Many plants can have “drooping” leaves/fronds; putting them in hanging baskets will allow them to grow more naturally and give you the full beautiful effect of their structure. They also love sunlight, so a hanging basket is perfect to situate them near windows.

While forgetting to water or mist them for a day won’t lead to instant death, you will notice their leaves dry up and drop. Keep them nicely watered and away from drafts to avoid this.

Boston ferns also have the advantage of being long-living. As long as you take proper care of it, you could have the same plant for years.
