Though Phlebodium Aureum has earned itself a variety of nicknames, it is most commonly referred to as the “Blue-Star Fern”.
The Blue-Star Fern thrives in moist soil that mimics its tropical home. This plant requires that you water it 1-2 times per week, or when the soil feels dry to the touch. Though it's important to keep the soil moist, the Blue Star Fern is also susceptible to root rot, so make sure you don't over-water.
In the wild, this plant is found in the shade of tropical overgrowth, so it's best to keep your Phlebodium Aureum in indirect sunlight.
Blue-Star Ferns are non-toxic and make a pet-friendly addition to your collection.
