Product Information

Not your ordinary fern, the Bears Paw Fern (Plebodium 'Blue Star) is an attractive and vigorous houseplant with a subtle deep blue-green leaf colour, looking almost like an exotic indoor seaweed!

Evergreen, it does not lose its leaves and retains its wonderful colour all year, making it a decorative and striking plant to decorate your home - perfect to give as a gift or a housewarming present.

As the plant grows, the fronds develop finger-shaped lobes as they mature, held on long stems and looking very much like an outstretched paw, hence its more common name of Bear's Paw or Rabbit Foot.

Easy to grow and look after, your Bear's Paw will tolerate low light and as a natural inhabitant of tropical rainforests, Plebodium does like its humidity high so is perfect for a bathroom or kitchen where it will thrive in a bright spot, out of direct sunlight.

An interesting and unusual fern, Blue Star is also perfect for cutting and flower arranging so don't be afraid to conjure up your inner designer!

Supplied as an established plant in a 12cm pot, growing to around 30cm x 30cm.

Top Tips

Even if you can't place your Plebodium 'Blue Star' in a humid atmosphere like your bathroom you can still grow it successfully, just mist the leaves regularly with water and place the pot on a tray of damp clay pebbles.

Care Information

Aftercare Advice for your Plebodium 'Blue Star' Bears Paw Fern:

  • Keep the compost moist (but not waterlogged) at all times except winter when plants are dormant and water can be cut down (but do not allow to dry out so that the compost shrinks from the side of the pot).
  • If you can't place it in a humid atmosphere like your bathroom you can still grow this plant, just mist the leaves regularly with water and or place the pot on a tray of damp pebbles.
  • Keep your fern at 18-25C.
  • Feed with a general-purpose plant food once a month.
  • When watering, pour water around the sides of the plant, as pouring it the middle can cause water to get caught at the bases of the leaves, which can result in rot.
