How to care for your Phlebodium Aureum ‘Blue Star’?
Phlebodium do best in a spot with some moderate light. This can either be filtered indirect light or semi-shade. It’s the perfect plant for a northern facing window or perhaps even your bathroom.
Water your plant about once a week in the growing season. Keep the soil a bit damp, but be cautious not to over water the plant. Phlebodium Aureum ‘Blue Star’ may be just a bit dry between watering, but certainly will not like long periods of droughts. In winter time less frequent watering is required.
The Phlebodium Aureum ‘Blue Star’ likes an airy soil mix which is well draining. Try using perlite and pine bark with coco coir to keep light. If you don’t like the hassle of making your own soil you can try using our Premium aroid mix.
Like most fern species Phlebodium Aureum ‘Blue Star’ will be fine in regular house hold humidity. However, to let the plant thrive it is advisable to lift up the humidity. If you have a bathroom with natural light, it would be an ideal spot for this plant.
In the summer months you can fertilize your plant. In the colder and winter months no fertiliser is needed. Please always check the instructions on your own fertiliser if it has other care instructions.
Repotting is recommended once every year or every other year. At the beginning of the growing season is the best timing to repot your plant.
Phlebodium species are considered non-toxic to animals or humans.
