As well as being a popular indoor houseplant, the Boston Fern cleans the air of pollutants, whilst being super-easy to care for. With its stiff, upright fronds and evergreen colouring, this fern brings a luscious feel to its surroundings.

How to care for your plant

Humidity

The Boston Fern really loves humidity. Mist a couple of times a week or, even better, keep your plant in the bathroom, allowing it to happily bask in steam.

Light Conditions
