Planting+

Supplied in a standard nursery pot. Pot up to a larger planter using humus-rich potting compost. Or stand the pot as is in an attractive planter. A saucer is fine too. Water may be allowed to stay in the saucer as it evaporates or is absorbed. Water again only when saucer is empty.

Choose a warm place for your Phlebodium aureum 'Blue Star' with no direct sunlight on the plant and preferably not below 13 degrees Celsius. The plant will require less water in cooler surroundings.

Care+

The Rabbit's Foot fern (Phlebodium aureum) 'Blue Star' is a fern native to tropical forests and really does not like direct sunlight! The Rabbit's Foot fern (Phlebodium aureum) 'Blue Star' likes to be kept humid so we recommend spraying the leaves regularly with rainwater. If the air is too dry, the edges of the leaves will dry and curl. This plant does not like too strong a fertiliser, so we recommend halving the dosage suggested on dry or liquid fertiliser packets for green plant houseplants.

Water less in the winter keeping the plant slightly drier. Wait until spring to resume watering and feeding.

Extra tips

 

  • Do not water the heart of the plant - it is best to water the actual potting compost, or add water to the saucer it is standing in.
  • This is an exceptionally strong plant requiring less heat and water than you would normally assume. A weekly watering should suffice making it an easy plant for in the bedroom or bathroom.
  • Pot this plant up every year or two.
 

Extra+

Phlebodium aureum is a tropical variety from the jungles of Central America and the Caribbean where it even grows on tree branches and rocks in humid conditions (epiphytic).

Phlebodium has recently been classified as Polypodiaceae - the family of rabbit's foot ferns.
