Nephrolepis exaltata whitmanii, also known as the Boston Fern or Fishtail Fern, is a species of fern native to tropical regions of the world. It is a popular houseplant due to its lush, bright green fronds that resemble fishtails. Here is everything you need to know about growing and caring for this beautiful fern.


  • Light: Bright, indirect light is best for Boston Ferns. They can tolerate low light, but the leaves may become pale and brittle.
  • Water: Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. Avoid getting water on the fronds as this can cause browning and disease.
  • Soil: This fern thrives in well-draining, nutrient-rich soil that is slightly acidic. A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite works well.
  • Humidity: Boston Ferns prefer a humid environment, so they should be misted regularly or placed near a humidifier.
  • Temperature: Optimal temperatures range between 60°F and 75°F. They should be kept away from cold drafts and hot, direct sunlight.


  • Fertilizer: Boston Ferns should be fertilized once a month with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer during the growing season.
  • Pruning: Regularly prune brown or yellow fronds to keep the plant looking neat and healthy.
  • Repotting: Repot your Boston Fern every two to three years to give it room to grow.
  • Pests: Boston Ferns are susceptible to spider mites and mealybugs, so keep an eye out for any signs of infestation.


  • Air Purification: Boston Ferns are great for removing pollutants from the air. They can help improve indoor air quality and reduce the levels of harmful toxins such as formaldehyde, benzene, and trichloroethylene.
  • Humidifier: By releasing moisture into the air through transpiration, Boston Ferns help increase humidity levels in the surrounding environment. This can help prevent dry skin, colds, and flu symptoms.
  • Decorative: With their lush, bright green fronds, Boston Ferns make great indoor plants for both homes and offices. They are easy to care for and can help create a calming, tropical atmosphere.

In conclusion, the Nephrolepis exaltata whitmanii is a beautiful and versatile fern that is perfect for both indoor and outdoor settings. With its bright green fronds, it can help improve indoor air quality, provide a natural humidifier, and add a touch of greenery to any space. So, why not try growing one today and enjoy all the benefits that come with it!
