Lemon Button Fern

Lemon button fern is a popular houseplant which is cultivated in thousands of homes. It can be grown indoors or outdoors based on your specific environments. For outdoor cases, the best zone for growing them should be zone 9 or 10. As a houseplant, lemon button can grow up to one foot in height and more than one foot in spread. The suitable temperature for planting them is about 20 degrees.

Lemon button fern like partial shade environment. So you should put them in a place without direct sun light. They prefer well-drained soil and some peat-based soil is the best choice for them. During the growth, you should apply water regularly to keep the soil moist at all times. Avoid over-watering your plant otherwise their root will rot. The best fertilizer recipe for them is a slow release formula with a ratio of 13-13-13. The fertilizer should be soluble and be diluted with water before application to the soil.

Since their roots are located in a shallow position in soil, you should not scratch the soil for any purposes to avoid damaging their roots. Also, some occasionally pruning by removing the dead leaves is necessary to make them tidy and healthy. During the growth of the plants, you might need to repot them into a bigger container for several times. The simplest way to determine if your plants need to be repotted is to check the drainage hole on the bottom. If the roots have come out of that hole, it is time to do the repotting work.
