FernsDon’t forget houseplants: maidenhair ferns (Adiantum capillus-veneris) are so hot right now, and rightly so. They’re a bit tricky to keep alive, but they give back in spades with their feathery, slightly whimsical air that reminds you of the sort of thing Virginia Woolf might have in her parlour.Keeping your indoor plants alive and thriving

Add some indoor plantsSpeaking of feng shui, including greenery in the bedroom in the form of peace lilies, palms, ferns and rubber plants makes for cleaner, cooler, more oxygenated air – finessing the positive feng shui in the room and setting up just the conditions you need for a great sleep.

Boston FernBotanical name: Nephrolepis exaltataA favourite of every mid-century hallway and Victorian era parlour, this is a fern’s fern, quite happy in modern decor. Hang it high, let its elegant arching fronds droop on a stylish plant stand or create a formal arrangement with a pigeon pair flanking a special furniture piece. It’s one of the hardier ferns.Prefers: Indirect filtered light and high humidity, around 50 per cent, which makes the bathroom an ideal spot. Keep soil moist but not soggy.Hates: Dry air, saturated soil. An unhappy fern may sulk and die off, but can be brought back from near death by adjusting its environment.Tip: Under no circumstances fall for a maidenhair fern. They are needy and temperamental and have a high mortality rate in the hands of amateurs.
Carol Bucknell Garden Design added this to Indoor Plant Profile: Boston Fern
Signature traits Long, arching feathery fronds divided into narrow pinnae. Who is it best suited to?Inexperienced plant lovers will find the Boston fern the ideal starter house plant. They suit both traditional and contemporary interiors as long as they are not too hot. Rooms with more humidity such as bathrooms and kitchens are ideal. It also does well in sheltered, shady outdoor spaces where temperatures are not too cold. In South Africa, the Boston fern grows too well and is considered an alien plant.

6. Boston fern (Nephrolepis exaltata) Many ferns act as natural air humidifiers and Boston fern is one of the best. It’s also a very good air purifier and on the list of plants that scientists have singled out for their ability to clean the air of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) such as formaldehyde and benzene. Tip: Like most ferns, it does better in filtered light so avoid sunny spots. Early-morning winter light is ideal. Ferns dislike dry air so if your place is heated make sure you mist your Boston fern regularly.
