a century ago in Boston (the name gave it away!) this graceful
variation on the sword fern (N. exaltata) has become a common
sight in rooms all over the world. It is one of the easiest
ferns to grow inside giving a mass of soft foliage all year
round in exchange for a small amount of care.
Water well throughout the growing season and less over winter.
Loves a misting as often as you can. A pebble tray would
also be beneficial.
Apply a weak liquid feed every three weeks or so.
A great plant for a bathroom.
