The Nephrolepis, popularly known as the Sword Fern, comes from a rich family of more than a hundred species. Each with its own appearance and specific characteristics, but all beautiful plants. Ferns are easy to maintain, purify the air and provide good humidity in the home and office. The green, highly decorative plants first appeared in Victorian England, but may now be considered to be real world travelers.
Ensure lightly moist soil at all times so that the fern has enough to drink. Make sure that no layer of water arises at the bottom of the pot since this can lead to root rot. Ferns also do well in humid places in the home, such as the bathroom or kitchen.
Ferns come into their own anywhere, but are found especially in places where other plants fail to thrive. A fern feels quite at home in a spot away from direct sunlight or in partial shade. If the leaves start to go yellow and the plant droops, then it is in a spot that is too brightly illuminated.
