The Boston Fern (*Nephrolepis exaltata* 'Bostoniensis') is a popular ornamental houseplant known for its lush, feathery fronds and graceful, arching habit. This fern is native to tropical regions and thrives in warm, humid environments. It is commonly grown indoors as well as in shaded outdoor gardens.

The fronds of the Boston Fern can grow up to 3 feet (about 90 centimeters) long and are composed of numerous small leaflets, giving them a delicate, airy appearance. To keep a Boston Fern healthy, it requires bright, indirect light and consistent moisture. The soil should be kept evenly moist but not waterlogged. High humidity is also beneficial, so misting the plant or placing it on a humidity tray can help maintain the required moisture levels.

Boston Ferns are known for their air-purifying qualities and are often used to improve indoor air quality. They are relatively low maintenance but may need occasional pruning to remove dead fronds and keep the plant looking its best. Regular fertilization during the growing season can promote vigorous growth and lush foliage.
