The Nephrolepsis cordifolia duffii prefers evenly moist soil, so water it thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels slightly dry to the touch. Avoid letting the soil become completely dry, as this can cause the fronds to dry out and brown. It's important to use well-draining soil and a pot with drainage holes to prevent water from sitting in the soil. We recommend measuring the moisture of the soil with a moisture meter.
This fern prefers bright, indirect light, but can also tolerate lower light conditions. Direct sunlight can scorch the fronds, so it's best to avoid placing it in direct sunlight.
Fertilize your Nephrolepsis cordifolia duffii every two weeks during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble or liquid fertilizer. Be sure to dilute the fertilizer to half strength to avoid burning the roots.
The Lemon Button Fern doesn't require frequent repotting, and can actually thrive in slightly cramped conditions. Repot only when the plant has outgrown its pot or the soil has become compacted. When repotting, choose a pot that is one size larger than the current one, and use a well-draining soil mix. Repotting is best done in the spring, when the plant is actively growing.
This was a very nice plant for a good price. I won't give it a lower star rating for trying too hard, but the packaging was a bit over the top for a $10 plant. They seemed to want it to be nice for me, but I had a heck of a lot of cardboard, and cloth sacks to throw out.
