Keep your Phlebodium aureum 'Blue Star' hydrated but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch of the soil to dry out before watering. Water more frequently during warmer months and reduce watering in the cooler ones. Use room-temperature water and ensure that the pot has drainage holes to prevent standing water. We recommend measuring the moisture of the soil with a moisture meter.
Provide your 'Blue Star' with bright, indirect light. It thrives in moderate to low light conditions, making it an excellent addition to indoor spaces with filtered sunlight. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, which can scorch its delicate fronds.
Feed your 'Blue Star' with a balanced liquid fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer). Dilute the fertilizer to half strength and apply every 4-6 weeks. Reduce or stop fertilizing during the dormant period in fall and winter. Over-fertilization can lead to leaf burn, so be cautious not to overdo it.
Repot your Phlebodium aureum 'Blue Star' every 1-2 years or when it becomes root-bound. Spring is the ideal time for repotting, as it allows the plant to establish itself in fresh soil before its growing season. Choose a pot that's slightly larger than the current one, use a well-draining potting mix, and ensure the new container has drainage holes. Gently loosen the root ball and place it in the new pot, filling in with soil around the edges.
