About This Product

A healthy houseplant for you, or a thoughtful gift for that eco-conscious friend!

Give the gift of clean air with a beautiful, air-filtering houseplant. This plant was included as part of the NASA Clean Air Study or subsequent studies completed by other air quality scientists. These Clean Air plant filters toxins from the air, some of which may include benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene.

Nephrolepis, also known as Sword Ferns, are hardy charismatic plants that stand out in a crowd. Their traditionally large stature and abundant foliage make them an excellent choice for filling in a living space or adding a bright tropical flair to a terrarium.

There are nearly 30 different species of Nephrolepis ferns. Below are the species we commonly carry and may be included in your order. We will sometimes receive plants that are not mentioned below but all will be from the Nephrolepis genus.

Nephrolepis spp. varieties we carry:

  • Emerald Vase
  • Boston
  • Lemon Button
  • Fluffy Ruffles
  • Australian Sword Fern

 This plant comes in an attractive Eco-Friendly Biodegradable Rice Hull Pot with Saucer that is both long-lasting and safe for the environment. The pot and saucer will last up to 10 years with normal indoor use and will break down into a nutrient-rich organic matter when composted.
