Phlebodium aureum - Blue Star Fern
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!

Blue Star Fern gets a Gold star
Blue Star Fern arrived like it was just plucked off the shelf: perky and happy.
Blue Star Fern
Fern was packaged well and arrived in good shape. I’m new to this fern so I’m still trying to get the watering and lighting down but so far so good.
Beautiful Blue Star!
My Blue Star Fern came very carefully packaged and arrived in beautiful condition! I was so pleased to get such a full plant even though the pot size was fairly small. I'm definitely going to be ordering from Pistils again, beautiful plants that came in great condition and a good price too.
