Raquel's Garden

Boston Fern

Genus: Nephrolepis.

Species: Nephrolepis exaltata.

I inherited this fern from a neighbor who retired to spite of perhaps not having quite as much shade as it should, it does quite well, though at times its leaves become a bit crisp, expecially in July/August. This one I feed a commercial fertilizer designed for green plants. I always wonder wether I should repot it, but doing so fills me with dread, so I never do it. Still, it seems to like its home so far.
