Carl's survival guide
Easy like a Sunday morning
This beautiful and special fern is originally from New Zealand and South-East Asia but his name is Greek. 'Nephros' is Greek for Kidney and 'Lepsis' translates to 'scale'. The Greek refer to the scale of this plant that have a 'kidney like' shape to them. It takes a bit of fantasy, we agree but it makes for a good story. Carl is a thirsty dude so be sure to water him plenty of time. Carl is not poisonous and doesn't need any plant food. The Plantsome app will help with his watering needs. Easy!
How to care for Carl
Carl is the ultimate green houseplant. He has a full head of bright green leaves and easy to maintain. Easy to take care of and great at purifying the air, too. Another mouthful, his real name is Nephrolepsis but he's often called the Boston Fern. Some say he studied at Harvard and got a degree in frond management.
