Nephrolepis is a genus of about 30 species of ferns in the family Davalliaceae (included in Lomariopsidaceae in some classifications).

Nephrolepis species are frost tender but are easily grown in mild areas in a position in full shade or partshade with moist humus-rich soil and steady high humidity. They are widely cultivated as indoor plants. In cooler climates, if they are grown in heated indoor situations, ensure they receive plenty of bright filtered light and ample water. They can be propagated by division or from spores.

It is also one of the best over all plants at removing gaseous toxins from the air, including formaldehyde.

Species and varieties:

Nephrolepis duffii

Nephrolepis exaltata

Nephrolepis falcata
