Blue Star Fern (aka Phlebodium Aureum)

  • Location:

    I originate in the tropical Rainforests of South America.
  • Looks:

    I have beautiful flat, blue fronds on the end of more rigid stems.
  • Height:

    I can grow to appoximately 1m in height.
  • Environment:

    I like dappled light situations, and partial shade.
  • Flowers:

    My foliage is so beautiful I don't need flowers.
  • Grooming:

    Just trim off browning or damaged leaves. Repot me in an orchid mix.
  • Life Span:

    I can live a long time with the correct care
  • Feeding:

    Although I am considered an easy care plant I do like to be moist all the time. Try to recreate the rainforest for me in your home with lots of misting. Place me near other plants, or on a pebble tray, to enhance humidity
  • Fact:

    I am an epiphyte so would normally lodge on another plant in the rainforest canopy.
