Bushy and beautiful, the Boston fern will add some woodland charm to your home. A natural air purifier, it's super efficient at removing chemicals like formaldehyde from the air. It loves indirect light and lots of humidity — making it a natural choice for your bathroom. Please place it in a hanging basket and let its delicate fronds drape over the sides.

About Boston Fern

In 1848, Michael Jerome Leszczyc-Suminski, a Polish count interested in botany, identified the missing link that created the fern's life cycle. A fern spore will germinate when it finds the right balance of temperature, light, and moisture. But unlike other plants, the fern spore turns uniquely into a different plant with no resemblance to the parent plant. It doesn't even have roots! But it contains the reproduction organs on its leaf-like underside. After fertilization is complete, the egg grows into an embryo, producing roots, stems, and leaves. Ultimately, the baby fern sends out fiddleheads or the furled fronds of a young fern, unlike its parent but its grandparent! It skips a generation before actual replication!
