The Kimberly Queen fern or the Australian Sword fern as it is sometimes called is more compact, tidier, and easier to care for than other ferns. Its long, almost erect sword-shaped fronds never leave a mess. This is an extremely adaptable fern.
Nephrolepis obliterata, the Kimberley Queen fern, is a species of fern in the family Lomariopsidaceae. This fern originated in Australia, but is relatively easy to cultivate indoors worldwide. Unlike a Boston or Dallas fern, the Kimberly Queen or Australian sword fern grows upright, rather than spreading out towards the sides, giving it a neater appearance and making it easy to care for. The Kimberly Queen is also a very resilient species. The plant grows just as well in a hanging basket as on the ground, giving it an advantage of versatility as a decorative plant. Nephrolepis obliterata has the added benefit of reducing indoor air pollution, particularly formaldehyde, xylene, and toluene
