Blue Star Fern
The Blue Star Fern, Phlebodium aureum, is known for its attractive, arching fronds with distinctive blue-green foliage. The fronds have a feathery appearance, and the undersides often have a silvery-blue hue. A relatively easy fern to look after.
A common symptom of underwatering and a lack of humidity is fronds curling in on themselves.
How to care for Blue Star Fern
Blue Star Ferns prefer bright, indirect light. They can tolerate lower light levels but may not thrive in low-light conditions. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the delicate fronds.
One of the easier ferns to care for.
These ferns prefer evenly moist conditions and may suffer if the soil dries out.
Feed once a month during the spring and summer, reduce frequency the rest of the year.
Blue Star Ferns appreciate higher humidity but they can adapt to average indoor humidity levels. Regular misting can help create a more humid environment.
