Plant Features

The Tiger Stripe Fern, also known as the Boston Fern or Nephrolepis exaltata, is a popular houseplant known for its striking variegated foliage and easy-care nature. Its name aptly describes its fronds, which feature bold stripes of green and yellow, resembling a tiger's stripes. This versatile fern can thrive in a variety of indoor environments, adding a touch of tropical elegance to any space.

For troubleshooting, browning fronds can be caused by low humidity, dry air, or underwatering. Increase the humidity around the plant by misting regularly or placing it on a pebble tray filled with water. Yellowing fronds can indicate overwatering or poor drainage. Allow the soil to dry out slightly between waterings and ensure the pot has adequate drainage holes. Insufficient light can cause the fronds to lose their vibrant color. Move the plant to a location with brighter, indirect light. Keep an eye out for common fern pests like spider mites and scale insects. If detected, treat the plant with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
