Boston fern (officially called Nephrolepis) is a full, bushy plant with single or multiple feathered leaves. They grow obstinately in all directions, so that this green power plant likes to have some space around it in order to be able to develop optimally. New shoots and aerial roots give it a very natural jungle look. If cared for properly, Boston fern can last for years, and all that time it will be doing something for you too: it’s a plant with air-purifying properties that helps to clean the air in your home. Because Boston fern likes a humid environment it’s an ideal plant for the bathroom, also because it’s handy for popping it under the shower.
