Found in moist forests where humidity and rainfall is high Phlebodium aureum ‘Blue Star’ forms dense clumps and will quiet happily grow in a container.

Not hardy but here in the U.K it enjoys spending time outdoors during the warmer months looking great amongst other tender exotics with it’s broad leaves an interesting powdery pale blue. Sometimes sold here as a houseplant, something it is very happy with as long as you give it a bright spot out of direct light keeping up the humidity with regular misting or by standing on a gravel tray which is moist.
