The Blue Star Fern’s popularity comes from its stunning color and the fact that it is lower maintenance than many of its relatives. It grows best in bright, indirect but can tolerate lower-light conditions. Because the plant grows naturally in tropical forests keeping the soil moist and misting the leaves helps keep the humidity up.
