Phlebodium aureum - Blue Star Fern

$ 10.00

Phlebodium aureum is a rhizomatous fern closely related to other ferns in the genera Polypodium and Davallia. Their creeping rhizomes are cute and furry, but their large, blueish fronds turn them into a statement plant for any home. Nicknamed the Blue Star Fern because of their unique foliage color, Phlebodium aureum is native to Central and South America, and is easy to care for. Because it has adapted to seasonal dryness in its native environment, it's a very forgiving addition to any plant collection.


Light: Perfect for medium or bright, indirect light
Water: Keep evenly moist, including rhizomes. Water when the first inch of soil feels dry to the touch
Considerations: Thrives in humid conditions, avoid placing near vents and drafty areas. Shallow root system - deep planters aren't necessary. Pet friendly!


You'll get a healthy Phlebodium aureum that meets our rigorous quality standards in a your choice of a 4" or 6" nursery pot. No two plants are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality; expect this natural variation from the photos.

Our plants include detailed care instructions as well as our Houseplant Best Practices guide, with information on how to repot, seasonal care and more!

The plant shipped fast, arrived wrapped with care and was in near perfect condition considering it’s travel. I will never order plants from anywhere else again. So impressed and happy with my new plant!
