Scientific Name: Nephrolepis 
Synonyms: Boston Fern ‘Golden Glow’, Sword Fern ‘Golden Glow’

  • Attractive sword-like foliage
  • Tough Fern variety
  • Upright growth habit
  • Can be hung to create a gorgeous feature
  • Humidity lover

The Golden Glow Boston Fern is an easy-care and resilient member of the Sword fern family, with its beautiful emerald fronds that arch effortlessly for a full and delicate appearance.

Nephrolepis ferns are known for their ability to thrive in brighter light and the Golden Glow is no exception. Keep this dainty fern happy with warmth and high humidity, making it a perfect choice for a brightly lit bathroom or kitchen. Its upright growth habit, compared to its larger relative the Australian Sword Fern, makes it a great addition to smaller spaces with bright light.
Showcase this lush fern in a stylish planter on a table or shelf, where it can make a statement on its own or complement other houseplants. And for those who prefer hanging plants, the Golden Glow does well in this form as well. Keep its full and healthy appearance by planting it in a rich organic mix and maintaining even moisture. Don't forget to spritz and use a pebble tray to keep the humidity high and prevent dry edges on.
Please note: Nephrolepis is non-toxic to pets and humans.

Follow these instructions to keep your Sword Fern houseplant healthy and happy.

Light: Bright filtered light is best.
Water: Water once the surface of the soil is dry to the touch, however, avoid complete drying out.
Humidity: Medium to high humidity is ideal.
Fertilizer: Use a well balanced organic fertilizer or a fertilizer specially formulated for ferns every two weeks during active growth of Spring through Summer.
