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.

Care

General 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.
