phlebodium aureum
Plant Bio

Phlebodium aureum is an epiphytic fern native to the tropical rainforests of North and South America. However, it is the only species of Phlebodium growing in North America.

Like most names, the Latin translation is descriptive. Phlebodium means lots of veins. Aureum translates to gold, referencing its golden rhizomes.

Part of the Polypodiaceae family.

Also commonly called Golden Polypody, Hare-foot Fern, Golden Foot Fern.


| In the wild, the Blue Star Fern is native to tropical treetops, thriving in dappled sunlight. At home, they are happiest in bright daylight; they don't need direct light but will happily enjoy up to half an hour of passing sunshine. 

Water | Like other ferns, the Blue Star Fern thrives on consistent moisture. Water when the soil's surface feels dry to the touch. Avoid watering directly onto the golden rhizomes.

Humidity | The Blue Star Fern enjoys a good level of humidity. A natural way to achieve this is by grouping plants or using a pebble tray.

Temperature | Ferns like temperatures between 16-24℃.
