This Fern is cute as a button! Round, leathery leaves form on fronds that start to cascade outward making it a perfect statement plant. If you're looking for something small for a medium light bathroom, this one's a winner! Button Ferns are also easier than other ferns to care for and won't throw a tantrum if not fussed over constantly.

Comes in a 12cm grow pot. Decorative pot sold separately.

Caring for Bert

Light

Medium to bright indirect light. Button Ferns are used to living on the forest floor under a canopy of shade. Too much light can brown the leaf tips, so avoid windowsills.

Water & humidity

Water regularly & deeply. Most ferns enjoy moist, but not waterlogged soil. Button Ferns especially hate being waterlogged and prefer just the very top layer of soil to dry out between watering.

Feeding

Monthly in summer with organic fertiliser. Too much will cause yellow spots on the leaves.

Re-potting

Re-pot if the rhizomes grow too big for the pot. Use a regular indoor potting mix, with added peat if you'd like it to retain more moisture. Never bury the rhizomes under the soil. You can also gently split the rhizome apart, finding its natural divisions to propagate.  

Atrium Top Tip

Button Ferns enjoy humidity levels around 50% and above. Browning leaf tips is a sign the air is too dry. Spray your fern regularly with water or group near other plants. You can also place it in a bathroom or kitchen where there's naturally more moisture in the air.

Quirky plant fact

Button Ferns are native to New Zealand.
