The Blue Star Fern (Phlebodium aureum) is gaining popularity for its bold, blue-green foliage, and because it’s easier to keep than many of its fussy cousins. Besides making a striking contrast with other houseplants, it’s a promising choice for anyone who hasn’t had luck with ferns and wants to try again.
Large growing fern with upright wiggly blue-green fronds which develop more lobes as the plant matures. Plants may grow furry aerial roots, this is normal.
Perfect for pots.
PLANTING: Indoor plants should be rotated for optimum health. Mulch after planting to retain moisture and regulate soil temperatures as the young plant establishes.
CARE: Keep moist during dry periods. Ferns thrive in humid conditions. Apply a slow release fertiliser during spring and a liquid fertiliser every 4 weeks during the warmer months, take care to dilute your solution to half the recommended dose to avoid burn. Re-pot container plants only if they are outgrowing their pots.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 60-90 cm H x 30-40 cm W.
If you have heating units or air-conditioners, it is best to avoid placing plants underneath or next to them. This is because of the air blowing out from these units can be extremely hot or cold which can leave a healthy plant burnt, damaged and stressed. We recommend the Australian made Munash Organics soil food & foliage spray or The Plant Runner Plant Food or neem oil to keep you plants happy and healthy!
