  • Care
  • The Rabbit's Foot fern (Phlebodium aureum) is a fern native to tropical forests and really does not like direct sunlight! The Rabbit's Foot fern (Phlebodium aureum) 'Blue Star' likes to be kept humid so we recommend spraying the leaves regularly with rainwater. If the air is too dry, the edges of the leaves will dry and curl. This plant does not like too strong a fertiliser, so we recommend halving the dosage suggested on dry or liquid fertiliser packets for green plant houseplants.

    Water less in the winter keeping the plant slightly drier. Wait until spring to resume watering and feeding.
    Extra tips
    • Do not water the heart of the plant - it is best to water the actual potting compost, or add water to the saucer it is standing in.
    • This is an exceptionally strong plant requiring less heat and water than you would normally assume. A weekly watering should suffice making it an easy plant for in the bedroom or bathroom.
    • Pot this plant up every year or two.

    Sick Building Syndrome
    The harmful gas particles in the house, such as benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene are solvents and are often used in the production of chipboard and other wood household items such as kitchen cabinets and other pieces of furniture - or perhaps even as cleaning agents. These items of furniture often need time to disperse the gases contained in them and are often still dispersing when they already been placed in our homes and offices. This can often lead to a bad atmosphere that can cause headaches either in the home or at the office and the phenomenon is known as 'Sick Building Syndrome'.
