The Button Fern, or Pallaea Rotundifolia, may get its name from the rounded leaves of their fronds, but we call ‘em that because they’re cute as a button! These charming evergreen ferns of the Pteridaceae family are a short, bushy variety native to New Zealand and Australia. While in their natural habitat they have the ability to grow about a foot to 1.5 feet tall, in the home you can expect your lil’ button to stay pint-sized.
Light: This fern is native to the forest floor, and therefore favors dappled, filtered sun, to medium light. A bright, indirect spot a few feet from a bright window is best. Be careful not to place in hot, direct sun to avoid scorching its fronds.
Water: Ferns love water, but like most plants, do not like to sit in soggy soil. Water your fern once the surface of the soil feels slightly dry to the touch, and make sure you give it a pot with a drainage hole.
Humidity: Ferns also thrive in a humid environment and will appreciate it if you add a humidifier or pebble tray to your plant care routine.
