Lemon Button Fern


Category: Tag:


I’m the Lemon Button Fern, the best type of fern in my opinion. I get my name because, during my active growing season, I give off the warmest and most refreshing lemony scent. I am quite small and only ever reach heights of 1′ tall. If you have had troubles finding a fern that you can keep alive, then I am the plant for you. I can tolerate low light to bright, indirect light making me very versatile to fit anywhere in your home. I am great at boosting humidity and am also safe to be around your pets.
