Phlebodium, commonly known as Blue Star Fern, is an interesting looking fern with elongated fronds and pleasant green-blue colour, adding contrast and colour to any indoor collection.

Due to the Blue Star Fern houseplants ability to tolerate lower-light conditions makes it ideal for adding life to a dimly lit corner in your home or office space and not only that, this stunner is also relatively easy to care for, making it a great choice for beginning and more experienced fern lovers alike!

They'll add fabulous texture to any plant shelf or make for an excellent tabletop accent piece. Pair this funky blue tinge foliage planter with a bold standout planter for a pop of charm and overtime graduate this houseplant into a bigger size, and watch this gorgeous fern grow!

Please note: This fern is not considered toxic, but prefers not to be a meal to keep looking its best.

Follow these instructions to keep your Blue Star Fern healthy and happy:

Light: Will tolerate shade but grows better in bright light. Avoid direct sunlight as this will scorch the fronds. 
Water: Keep soil evenly moist. Underwatering shows up in drooping leaves.
Humidity: Enjoys high humidity, so mist regularly. 
Temperature: Not sensitive to temperature, but would prefer cool to medium indoors temperatures, 10 – 26°C. 
Fertilizer: Feed every 2 weeks during the growing season with a weak solution of all-purpose plant food.
