Abstract:

Protected cultivation of Nephrolepis exaltata L. plants paved way to increase its cut foliage value in the market by providing suitable micro climate conditions for growth and development. The present study was focused on evaluating the foliage fern viz., Boston fern under different coloured shade nets viz., red, white, green, black and control as natural shade. Environmental parameters viz., light intensity, temperature and relative humidity recorded during the entire study period indicated that highest light intensity was recorded under red coloured shade net as well as in control. No significance change was found in temperature and relative humidity under different coloured shade nets. Most of the growth parameters were found to be superior in the plants grown under red net conditions where it received maximum light intensity throughout the growth period.
