Long John Pendulant Fern

The Long John Pendulant Fern (Nephrolepis pendula, synonym: N. cordifolia) is a Boston-type fern from the Neotropics (common in Panama). Casa Flora is proud to introduce it to those who would like to top their neighbors.

This fern is ginormous! It commonly grows up to 6′ tall, and its fronds can grow to 20 feet long. That may not work great for small apartments in the city, but they look fantastic in hotels, interior atriums and malls where they can stretch to their full glory.
