Lemon Butter Fern
After removing your lemon button fern from the box, carefully unwrap your new plant pal. Shake off any excess dirt that might have escaped from the plant during shipping. Handle its foliage and other living elements carefully! Discard any packaging elements.To make caring for your plant a snap, we’ve nestled her in a draining plastic pot underneath her basket. To water, simply pull up the plastic pot to remove it from its decorative vessel. We find it easiest to water our plants in the sink - place them into the basin, turn the faucet on low and let the water run into the soil until it begins to run through the drainage hole on the bottom. Let her continue to drain in the sink and then place her back in her basket!
Humidity-they love it!!! Water your plant when the top portion (~ 1-2”) of the soil becomes dry. Allow the water to drain through the entire pot and don’t let it get “wet feet” (sit in water!) otherwise it will be prone to developing root rot. If you live in a colder climate, to increase humidity, put rocks underneath your plastic pot in your vessel.

When it comes to finding your fern a home, choose an area that has lots of indirect sunlight. Ferns love a good photosynthesis sesh but are more sensitive to direct sun. How to know what’s right? Find your blooming beauty a spot three or four feet from your brightest window. Signs that your plant pal is getting too much sun? Check for browning edges or leaves! This likely means your fern is getting sunburnt. Skip the SPF and move it to a spot with a little less light!
