|Kimberley Queen fern|
|Kimberly Queen fern (Nephrolepis obliterata)|
The often misspelled "Kimberley Queen" name correctly has a second "e" in the first name as is trademarked by Westland Laboratories Ply. Ltd.
The Kimberley Queen is not as well known as the Boston fern. Because it is not as sensitive to a lack of humidity, it is better suited for the typical indoor environment.
Nephrolepis obliterata prefer bright, but indirect sunlight. Temperatures between 16°C and 24°C are best. Nephrolepis obliterata is sensitive to both too little and too much water, so water the plant well but permit the soil to dry out between waterings.
