phlebodium aureum ‘Blue Star’.
We are so excited to bring these sustainably grown plants to you.
The plants are grown in a UK nursery, using peat free soil and in their very own biodegradable coir plant pot by the very talented Harriets Plants. Completely plastic free!
The Phlebodium aureum ‘Blue Star’ is a humidity loving fern. Their colour and shape is absolutely lovely and is a beautiful addition to any home.
Bright rooms with indirect sun will make this fern very happy. It can also cope with slightly lower light conditions including partial shade.
Weekly watering - Keep the soil moist throughout the growing season, making sure to water from the base of the plant and not onto the leaves. This plant loves humidity so it is ideal for bathrooms.
Hard to kill?
7/10 - Ferns can often be tricky but as long as you have the right light and watering conditions this plant will grow beautifully.
How to pot.
The coir pot is completely biodegradable. We suggest keeping the plant in its coir pot for its first year. These can sit inside decorative pots or directly onto a saucer. The roots will start to grow through the pot so when you come to upgrade to a bigger size pot in spring you can add soil around the coir pot and it will continue to grow happily.
If you do want to remove the coir pot make sure to do this carefully. Cut the pot away, gently remove any roots that have attached and then pot into its new pot. The coir pot can then be recycled as it is biodegradable.
