An attractive variety of indoor fern, closely related to the Boston Fern, Nephrolepis Green Lady has the same elegant, arching fronds in a neat clump, so it is lovely in a pot or indoor hanging basket.

Unlike the ferns we are familiar with in this country, the Green Lady Sword Fern is evergreen. They are shallow rooted, and clump forming, so very happy planted within a pot. The luscious, pinately divided fronds on wiry stems grow in a rosette manner and can develop spores on their undersides. 

N. Green Lady hails from Central America and Africa, where it grows in swamps, meaning this is a fern that likes to be damp, despite its dry appearance. These fast-growing ferns prefer higher humidity levels and do not do well in dry air conditions, so are ideal in a bathroom or kitchen. You can move it outside in the summer if you wish, to somewhere sheltered and partially shaded.

Renowned for its ability to purify the air of toxins, particularly formaldehyde, it will also induce calm in your home.
