Lemon Button ferns are known for their golden-green foliage that releases a lemon-like aroma. Their fronds are covered in sets of tiny round leaves, that resemble little buttons. This fern stays at a fairly compact size in comparison to many other varieties, making it a great option for those smaller spaces in your home.

Pet Safe: Safe for pets
CareGeneral Maintenance: Repot when your plant becomes rootbound, to a pot 2-3 inches larger. Do not allow to dry out, or the leaves will get crispy. Propagate by division.
Temperature: Thrives in normal household temperatures, between 15º-26º Celsius. Keep away from drafts and drastic temperature changes. Ferns love high humidity, so they will greatly appreciate a pebble tray, humidifier, or being misted.
Light: Bright indirect light is ideal. Direct sun may scorch the leaves. They can tolerate slightly lower light conditions, but will grow at a slower rate.
Watering: Keep soil evenly moist, but not soaked. Water when the top 1-2 inches of the soil are dry to the touch. Ensure your pot has adequate drainage to avoid the roots sitting in excess water.
Soil: Any well-draining potting mix will work.
Fertilizer: Feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer, diluted to half the recommended strength, once every 3 weeks during the growing season.
