Care Advice

Boston Fern Houseplant

Native to tropical rainforests in Central & South America, Boston Ferns are also found in Africa and the Caribbean, ferns are a beautiful addition to any room.      

Used to living on the floor of the rainforest, she loves moist soil and a misty, humid environment.  She’s also pretty easy going when it comes to light.  Although she thrives in bright, indirect light – she can tolerate shadier spots (but never no natural light – all plants need that!)

They’re pretty easy to care for – they love a humid, cool environment (just like where they grow, on the forest floor) so make a great bathroom buddy.  They love indirect bright light but can handle a little more shade too.  Just ensure you water as soon as the top couple of inches of soil start getting dry to maintain the moistness of the soil.  She also loves a good misting with a water spray to keep moist and increase humidity.     

They really don’t like being touched (it can turn their fronds brown!) so pop her in a place where she can be left alone to grow and she won’t get brushed past too much.   

All of the houseplants in my shop are named after an inspiring woman. This time, it’s Fearne Cotton whose books and podcasts share so much joy, laughs, positivity and honesty – if you’ve not listened to the Happy Place podcast, I highly recommend it!  (After you buy this plant of course).        

The good news for pet owners is that the Boston Fern is non-toxic to pets!  Just keep out of reach if you have any fluffy friends who might be partial to a nibble.

In order to process the refund or re-sending of any damaged item, I will need photographs of the photographic evidence of the item(s) claimed for clearly showing damage to external packaging, internal packaging, parcel label on item and damage to the item, within 7 days.  Without this information and photographs, I will be unable to process your refund or send out replacement products.

Bought a “phoebe” plant as I can’t seem to keep houseplants alive! Delivery was amazing (plant still seemed happy!) and I even had a little freebie which I also love. Phoebe has settled in nicely in her new pot (also from Iris & Co, beautiful). Couldn’t ask for more and would definitely recommend!

Bought a beautiful pinstripe calathea that arrived super quickly and in great condition. There was also a hand written note and a care guide which was a very nice personal touch.

I ordered a houseplant from Iris & Co in the last few weeks and was very happy to receive a healthy, beautiful plant within a week of ordering. Gemma was quick to respond and very helpful. I love the info cards included with purchase that include helpful tips on how to care for each plant! Will definitely order again.

Lovely plant! Super speedy delivery! My plant has settled in well. She is keeping me company as I work, and makes me a little happier when doing admin!

I ordered a house plant and pot from Gemma and am really pleased with it so far.  The website pot recommendation was really helpful and also the plant care tips that were emailed to me separately. Gemma delivered the plants herself and the presentation was beautiful. Would really recommend for any gifts (to other or self!).
