|Nephrolepis exaltata is an indoor plant that can be grown outdoors in warm areas. The species has broad fronds, 6 inches wide, reaching 5 feet tall. These are the classic Victorian parlour ferns, or Boston ferns. They have a graceful, arching habit, and various cultivars are available. They require good, indirect light indoors, and monthly feeding. With pinnate fronds that hold pinnae that are wavy, particularly at their edges, this cultivar can be a dwarf-sized to average height. Hardy and easy to cultivate, it enjoys a moist soil, of slight acidity.
