Pellaea rotundifolia.

The cute little Button fern grows so well indoors that you may even forget about him.

He has arching fronds densely covered with small, round leaflets which makes this New Zealand native beauty an eye-catching plant for any brightly lit room. 

The Button Fern prefers less water than most ferns and the topsoil should be allowed to dry out between waterings. It does not appreciate direct light.

Pop him in a plant stand or a hanging basket and allow the trail of leathery, button-shaped leaflets to cascade over the side. "Where did you get him from?" they will all ask.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I love a hanging basket and just about any pot you got as long as it has a HOLE in it. Allows me to drain.
  • I grow to:  slow-growing and should not reach more than 12” in height and width.
  • Where to place me: Bright indirect light indoors
  • Watering Conditions: Tolerates fairly dry conditions. One thing this fern won't tolerate is soggy soil. If you notice the fronds starting to yellow and wilt, its a sign of overwatering. Cut back on the water, and trim the fronds.

            Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well-developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.

            We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door.
