Nephrolepis exaltata ‘Emina’ is a tender, evergreen fern that grows to a minimum of around 30cm (12 inches) tall, this fern may grow a little taller if it’s grown in optimum conditions and this fern is healthy and happy.  Nephrolepis exaltata ‘Emina’ produces arching fronds with a twisted, curved detail all along each frond, giving this fern a more modern, striking, and recognisable appearance.

Nephrolepis exaltata ‘Emina’ is a tender fern.  I am not sure just how tender this fern is, as I’ve not tested Nephrolepis exaltata ‘Emina’ in cold weather, outdoors myself, my experience of this fern is as an indoor fern or houseplant.  Nephrolepis exaltata ‘Emina’ flourishes when it’s grown in bright, but indirect light.  Look for a light and bright position for your plant, choose a spot that is safely away from harsh light that might scorch this fern’s fronds, choose a position where this fern will be sheltered from any direct sunlight.

Nephrolepis exaltata ‘Emina’ grows well as a houseplant, it looks very smart when it’s grown in a container, placed at the centre of a bright room.  If you’re growing Nephrolepis exaltata ‘Emina’ as a houseplant, you’ll need to ensure that you mist your plant regularly to provide the humid environment your fern requires.  To achieve sufficient humidity levels, you could grow your plant near an aquarium or another indoor water garden, or you could place a bowl of water with floating flowers near your fern to provide the additional humidity and moisture this plant requires, whilst creating another decorative feature for your home.

This fern thrives in a humid environment, so Nephrolepis exaltata ‘Emina’ is well suited to being grown as a terrarium plant, but due to its size, this fern is only suited to being grown inside larger terrariums.  If you’re considering growing Nephrolepis exaltata ‘Emina’ inside a terrarium, don’t forget to allow sufficient height and room for your fern’s roots, along with the compost and the drainage layer you’ll need, at the base of your terrarium.
