Botanical name - Phlebodium aureum 'blue star'
Origin - Tropical rainforests of South America
In the wild I live nestled in tree branches under dappled light under the rainforest canopy. So I’ll be happy in shady areas but I will grow best in bright indirect light. Prolonged exposure to bright direct sunlight may scorch my leaves.
Keep my soil moist, but not soggy. Check me weekly and give me a drink if the top inch of my soil feels dry. I don't like getting my leaves wet so try and water from the side of the pot. Let the top 2" of soil dry out between waterings in autumn and winter.
I thrive in humid environments so love a good steamy bathroom or kitchen. You can also pop me near other plants which creates more moisture in the air.
If my leaves are browning on the edges then I may need more of a drink or in a place with very dry air or I've been burnt in the sun.
