    Lemon Button Fern Description

    The Lemon Button Fern features light green, arching fronds covered in tiny, round leaves (the "buttons"). This compact fern rarely grows larger than a foot in height and width, making it an ideal choice for small spaces or as a tabletop plant. When the fronds are disturbed, they release a faint lemon scent, which adds a sensory dimension to its appeal.

    Care Plan for Lemon Button Fern

    Light: The Lemon Button Fern thrives in moderate to bright, indirect light. It can also adapt to lower light conditions, although growth may slow down. Direct sunlight should be avoided, as it can scorch the delicate fronds.

    Watering: This fern prefers consistently moist soil but not waterlogged. Water it when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Ensure good drainage to prevent root rot, which can occur in overly soggy conditions.

    Humidity: High humidity levels are beneficial for the Lemon Button Fern, simulating its natural tropical habitat. Increase humidity around the plant by misting it regularly, placing it on a pebble tray, or using a humidifier in drier environments.

    Temperature: It performs best in temperatures between 60-75°F (15-24°C). Avoid placing it near drafts, heating vents, or air conditioners, which can cause fluctuations and stress the plant.

    Child and Pet Safety: The Lemon Button Fern is non-toxic to both pets and children, making it an excellent choice for households with curious pets and little ones.

    General Tips: To maintain vibrant growth, fertilize the Lemon Button Fern with a balanced liquid fertilizer at half-strength during the growing season, typically spring through early fall. Regularly trim any brown or dead fronds to keep the plant looking tidy and healthy.
