Choose a warm place for your sword fern (Nephrolepsis exaltata) bright but with no direct sunlight on the plant and preferably not below 15 degrees Celsius. The plant will require less water in cooler surroundings.
The Green Lady fern (Nephrolepis exaltata) 'Green Lady' is a plant native to tropical forests where it grows in shaded conditions and really does not like direct sunlight! The Green Lady fern is easy to grow indoors and needs a high level of humidity so we recommend misting the leaves regularly with rainwater. If the air is too dry, the edges of the leaves will dry and curl. This plant does not like too strong a fertiliser, so we recommend halving the dosage suggested on dry or liquid fertiliser packets for green plant houseplants.
Water less in the winter keeping the plant slightly drier. Wait until spring to resume watering and feeding.
Nephrolepis exaltata is a tropical variety, native to tropical Asia and the Amazon forests where it even grows on tree branches and rocks in humid conditions (epiphytic).
Nephrolepsis now have their own family - Nephrolepidaceae.
