Description: The Nephrolepis, or Lemon Button Fern, is one of the most pleasant small ferns an Indoor Gardener can grow. A small fern that grows to about a foot high and not much more across, it boasts tiny arching stems. Leaves are round with very small serrated edges that alternate up the stem. When handled, there's a lemon scent, which - in addition to its yellowish gold color - gives the fern its name. The Nephrolepis is the smallest of the Boston ferns and good for the beginning Indoor Gardener. The plant usually starts off in a small pot of no more than 4 inches, and never progresses much out of a 6- to 8-inch container. Cute and compact, tiny golden-green button-like leaflets on dark green, arching stems that reach just a foot high. Suitable as a houseplant or terrarium planting. Feature in atrium or shade beds in frost-free areas. A lemony scent is often expressed when the leaves are crushed. Evergreen.
Care: Watch the base of the fronds. If they turn brown, you're either under- or over-watering. Care for the Lemon Button Fern is similar to that for any of the Boston Ferns.
