The Boston tiger fern is known for its two-toned variegated leaves which resemble tiger stripes! This plant loves to shoot out fast-growing and dense foliage, making it an easy and lovable addition to any collection.
Because this plant is a fern, it needs to stay consistently damp and humid - beyond that, though it's actually a lot easier than some other houseplants because it doesn't want very much light!
Lighting: Low to medium indirect light.
Water: Likes to be kept moist, but not soggy. Water once the top of the soil feels slightly dry, and make sure that the water is draining through without pooling in the pot or in the water tray. Mist often, or keep humid.
Soil/Potting: Plant in a well draining soil in a container with a drainage hole and made of slightly porous material like ceramic or sealed concrete. Repot annually or when plant exhibits discoloration without the presence of any mis-watering habits.
Fertilize: Monthly with bacterial inoculant recommended for steady growth and to promote richer coloration in the foliage.
Temperature: Room temp (55-85 degrees is ideal), protect from harsh fluctuations in temperature particularly in the winter
Toxicity: This plant is non-toxic.
