Nephrolepis 'Mini Russells'

The smallest Boston fern variety available.  Little plants are said to reach just 2" tall and 3" wide. (My original plant is now a year old and about 4" tall and 5" wide.  Larger than expected, but still miniature compared to the "real thing".)  Great for shady miniature gardens and fairy gardens and ideal for terrariums. Appreciates even moisture in the soil - not too dry and not too wet.  Hardy to zone 9-11; if grown outdoors, bring inside when night temperatures drop into the 50's.   A tropical perennial; does not tolerate frost.

  • Grow indoors or outside with bright indirect light
  • Keep evenly moist, not wet or soggy
  • Grow to about 2"tall and 3"wide (larger with age)
  • Cold hardy to zone 9
  • Available in 2.5” x 2.5” x 3.5" pots
