Lemon Button Fern, often referred to by various names like button sword fern, erect sword fern, little-leaved sword fern, and fishbone fern, is a dwarf variety of the popular Boston fern. Lemon Button Ferns take their name from the refreshing lemony scent released when their leaves are gently touched or crushed. They hail from pantropical regions, including Asia, Australia, the West Indies, Florida, Central America, and South America.
Lemon Button Fern is characterized by its petite, button-like fronds that radiate a bright and lively shade of green. These fronds create a captivating texture, adding depth to its overall look and infusing your space with a sense of freshness. This fern has a compact and bushy growth habit, making it an ideal fit for smaller to medium-sized containers. Whether placed on tabletops, nestled on shelves, or hung in baskets, its petite size and vibrant green foliage make it an excellent addition to any corner.
As a fern, Lemon Button is an excellent air-purifying houseplant, that filters out pollutants and adds oxygen to the environment.
This plant is very easy-care and versatile, adapting to even low-light rooms. It is a perfect houseplant for beginners and people with busy lifestyles. Moreover, it is a pet-friendly, non-toxic green friend that is recommended for households with pets.
Provide your Lemon Button Fern with bright, indirect sunlight. While it can tolerate lower light conditions, it will thrive when it receives ample, indirect light.
Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Aim to maintain a slightly damp environment without allowing the plant to sit in standing water.
Use a well-draining potting mix to ensure that the plant's roots don't become waterlogged.
Maintain indoor temperatures between 65°F and 75°F. Avoid exposing the plant to cold drafts.
During the growing season, which typically spans from spring to early autumn, apply a balanced, liquid fertilizer every 4 weeks. Dilute the fertilizer to half to avoid over-fertilization, which can harm the plant. Be cautious not to let the fertilizer come into contact with the foliage, as this can lead to leaf burn.
This fern is non-toxic, but you should keep it (and any houseplants) out of reach of pets and children.

When you purchase online, your plants have to go through lots of stress while traveling so they may need a few days to adjust to their new environment and thrive. If your plant does not perk back up after a few days of care, let us know and we will send replacements free of charge. Remember that we always try our best to accommodate you.
It’s advised that you should repot the plant as soon as you get it. After repotting, your new houseplant will most likely struggle with transplant shock. It may appear droopy, faded, or have a slower growth rate than usual during this time. This is completely normal, and it’s also normal for transplant shock to hit especially hard after repotting a brand-new houseplant. To make sure your plant has plenty of time to adjust to its new surroundings, wait a day after potting and water your plant. Make sure any excess water drains completely from the pot afterward. Monitor your soil’s moisture levels daily to start creating a watering routine. To help perk up your new houseplant, we recommend adding a little water-soluble fertilizer, compost, or sugar water to your soil to boost its nutrients and help it grow.
