Button Fern

The Button Fern is a super cute houseplant with rounded button like leaves. He is perfect for a kitchen or bathroom as he loves the extra humidity.



The unique Button Fern thrives on moisture and tropical temperatures. Pop this beautiful houseplant on a shelf among a few other trailing plants as ferns love the extra humidity created by a plant gang. This stunning houseplant arrives in a textured grey ceramic pot so once he is placed in your home, we promise he will instantly transform the space.  As with all ferns, this plant does need specific care. High humidity is key and make sure you don’t let the soil get too dry – he won’t thank you for it.

A button fern needs watering at least once a week to stay happy. Their natural habitat is forest floors, which means they can tolerate lower-light conditions.

The Button Fern aka Pellaea Rotundifolia won’t survive cold temperatures, so make sure he is kept away from draughts and cold windows during the Winter.

Plant Care

The Button Fern likes high humidity and should be watered once a week. Just make sure the fern is watered thoroughly so you can see water come through the bottom of the growing pot. Once the surface of the soil is dry, water again. Make sure the plant can always drain and never allow this petite beauty to sit in water as this will cause his roots to rot. Like all ferns, the Button Fern loves to be misted and will love you if you give him a daily spritz of water.

Don’t forget to keep him out of draughts and away from radiators. He’s happy in most areas (avoiding direct light) and even in a slightly shadier corner of your home. We suggest he avoids direct bright sunlight in Summer months as this will scorch the leaves.
