Description for Lemon Button Fern, Nephrolepis Cordifolia Duffii

Once it finds its place in your home, and you establish its care cycle, its pretty much care-free.

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, theres 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 6to 8inch container.
