Origin: Tropical Rain forests in Caribbean, North America, and South America.
The Blue Star fern is naturally an epiphyic fern, meaning they typically like to grow on things rather than in the ground. In the wild they tend to grow on trees in tropical rain forests. It collects its nutrients and moisture from water, rain, air, and any debris around it. Blue Star ferns have an amazing grey greenish blue colour and unique fronds, which look great planted in a container or mounted much like a Staghorn fern. Like most ferns Blue Star does best with consistently moist soil. Keep the humidity high by misting and the soil lightly moist, but never soggy. This fern can be a little temperamental and prefers for you to water around the edges of the plant, avoiding is rhizome. This fern prefers bright lighting. Be careful not to let your fern get too much light though, and only some direct sun.
