September’s Houseplant of the month

Introducing September's houseplant of the month - Blechnum gibbum

This miniature tree fern from the Pacific Islands makes a stunning, architectural houseplant with silver-edged bright green fronds. This beauty, also known as the Silver Lady Fern, will only reach a height of 120cm and can be enjoyed indoors all year round.

Care tips:

This plant is intolerant of lime, so use rainwater if you have hard water and repot into compost with a slightly acidic PH every one or two years. Keep compost moist but not wet and feed every two weeks in spring and summer. It likes bright, but filtered light - no direct sun.
