Lemon Button Fern (Nephrolepis cordifolia) - One of our most popular terrestrial plants, Lemon Button Fern is excellent for use in vivariums. Throws long, fuzzy rhizomes once acclimated, and will sprout more ferns along them in good conditions. Grows well in medium to high light and moist soil. Does not tolerate long periods of dry conditions. Grows to around 9-12" before fronds arc downward.
