Lemon Button Fern - 'Mini' plants for Miniature Gardens

Lemon Button Fern
Sixth in a series,

Common name:  Lemon Button Fern

Botanical name:  Nephrolepis cordifolia ‘Duffii’

Height: 5”  Width:  4”

  Why would you want it?

      Lemon Buttons Fern is one of the best small clumping Ferns.  It smells of lemon when brushed.

What is its best feature?

      A thrifty Fern with small upright fronds.  Durability.

How would you grow it?

      It works in a terrarium but does not need the humidity.  It can take bright light but does well in lower light, too.  You can trim individual fronds to height if needed.

What would you do with it in a Miniature Garden?

      It can give you some height as an upright Fern that could be a bush-form surrounding a house in a scene.
