Blue Star Fern
Place your Blue Star Fern near a window that gets morning or late afternoon sun or in a room that gets a medium amount of natural light. Bright, sunny, or overly warm windows should be avoided as direct sunlight will make the plant lose it's leaves or turn the leaves yellow. Rotate the plant occasionally to encourage even growth.
The Blue Star Fern tolerates low sunlight, but will thrive in bright, indirect sunlight.
Water moderately so that the soil remains damp, not soggy. Water when the surface becomes slightly dry. When watering, remove the plant from its decorative planter and water with fresh water lightly and slowly from above, allowing water to soak through to the roots, then tip out any excess water before returning the plant to its decorative planter. Water from the sides rather directly onto the leaves. Dry soil should be avoided. Reduce watering during the cold season.
Does well at room temperature between 60°F - 77°F. Cold temperatures should be avoided.
The Fern requires higher levels of humidity, around 75% or above. Use a humidifier or occasionally mist the plant to increase humidity.
The plant can live happily in the provided grow pot for up to a year. Check if the plant is ready to be repotted by touching the soil and seeing if it has become loose, or if the roots have filled the bottom of the pot. Repot using a rich, well-draining soil.
Unhealthy Plant Signs
Browning, falling leaves may be a sign of underwatering. Holes on leaves may be a sign of pests. Cut off any damaged fronds to encourage new growth.
