Nephrolepis Blue Bell

Mature tubestock, premium and ready to plant!

Pet friendly


Nephrolepis Blue Bell is one of the most popular forms of Boston ferns worldwide and it’s easy to see why with its compact ball of fishbone fronds and floaty, drapey ones dangling below. The bright green tropical colour is a real pop and despite all those benefits its surprisingly low maintenance.

Bluebell fern is perfect for hanging baskets in the shade, in the crack of a wall or as an indoor plant for your office desk. It needs fairly dry roots and cool leaves, so if you can spray her she’ll thank you and glow all the brighter.
Nephrolepis Blue Bell is a textured shock of colour that needs no pruning and only asks for minimal watering with an occasional feed of good quality fertiliser. What more could you ask for? 

Nephrolepis species are frost tender but are easily grown in mild areas in a position in full shade or part-shade with moist humus-rich soil and steady high humidity. They are a fave when it comes to indoor plants. In cooler climates, if they are grown in heated indoor situations, ensure they receive plenty of bright filtered light and ample water, away from direct burning light.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I make an exciting indoor hanging basket transforming a drab interior into one with chic style. Outside I thrive in the dry shady corner other plants don’t like. Perfect for a Green Wall with those delicate draping fronds.
  • I grow to: I’ll get to 1.2m high and 1m wide 
  • Where to place me: I love the bathroom or any indoor spot with indirect sunlight. Outside I need to shelter from the harsh sun that will frazzle my fishbone fronds. 
  • How far to space me: If you’re mass planting me with my friends around 1m of space, please.
  • Soil conditions Water every second day during very dry periods. Ferns thrive in humid conditions. Feed using a gentle, organic fish emulsion.
