Phlebodium Aureum 'Blue Star Fern'
The Blue Star Fern stands out from the other members of the family of Ferns for its bold blue-green color leaves that are shaped like fingers. Also standing out is this fern's golden-brown, furry “creeping rhizomes” that provide contrasting color as they cover the soil and spill over the pot’s rim. Unlike other Ferns, this one is not as finicky when it comes to care, thriving in drier, less humid conditions and in more light than most other Ferns.
