You will receive the exact plant shown in the photo. This Lemon Button Fern plant has been transplanted in fresh potting mix and includes a decorative plastic plant pot.


The Lemon Button Fern is a dwarf variety of the common Boston Fern. This adorably compact fern is known for being resilient and less finicky than some of its relatives, and its small size makes it perfect for growing indoors. 


These ferns aren’t just cute as a button (pun intended), they are also relatively hardy and easy to grow. Compared to other varieties of fern, lemon button ferns can withstand a little bit of neglect which makes them ideal for the novice grower, or those who have a notoriously black thumb when it comes to ferns. All they need is a little bit of light and consistent watering and they will be happy.

  • Light

    Lemon Button Ferns grow best in medium, indirect light but can also tolerate low light or bright light conditions. However, never place your lemon button fern in direct sun as it will burn the delicate leaves.


    As with most ferns, the lemon button fern should never be allowed to fully dry out. Water your fern at least once a week to ensure that the soil stays consistently moist. While these ferns appreciate consistent moisture, never waterlog the soil as it can lead to root rot.

    Temperature and Humidity

    These ferns prefer warm, humid conditions. For the most part, typical household temperature and humidity levels should be fine for lemon button ferns, although if your house is particularly dry your fern will appreciate some added moisture. Try placing your lemon button fern near a small humidifier or in a high-humidity room like the bathroom or kitchen.


    Common Problems With Lemon Button Ferns

    Brown Crispy Fronds

    Fronds that turn brown and crispy are an indication that your lemon button fern is not receiving enough water and humidity. Ensure that you are watering your plant regularly, and try providing extra humidity using a pebble tray or humidifier.

    Wilting Leaves

    Wilting leaves can be an indication of two separate problems: too much sun, or overwatering. If the wilting leaves are accompanied by mushy stems, the culprit is likely overwatering, otherwise you may be looking at sun damage. 

    Leaves Turning Yellow

    Yellowing leaves can also be an indication of either too much sun or too much water. Ensure that your plant is not in a location that receives direct sun, and never saturate the soil during watering.
