How to Care for Blue Star Fern

Phlebodium pseudoaureum, also known as the Blue Hares Foot Fern, or the Virginia Hares Foot Fern, is typically larger than its cousin the rabbits foot fern. While the rhizomes in which it spreads stay small, the leaves that sprout from these rhizomes can grow quite large - up to 10 inches long, much larger and robust than its cousin. The Blue Rabbits Foot fern gets its name from the rhizomes that spread outward from the plant on top of the soil. As the rhizomes grow out from the plant, new leaves will sprout from it along the way which makes this plant a larger addition to your fern collection. Some growers prefer to let them naturally grow outward and all over the rim of the pot eventually covering the pot, while some prefer to train them to grow certain directions which is nice when allowed to grow in a rectangular pot. Known for its large leaf size, along with the unique blue leaf color and shape, the Blue Hares Foot Fern is a popular fern for all plant lovers alike. As most ferns, it does not prefer direct light so it should not be placed directly in front of a south facing window. Most growers tend to move the plant outdoors in the summer after all danger of frost.
