Description: Fern Glowstar, also known as Selaginella kraussiana 'Aurea', is an eye-catching and versatile fern prized for its vibrant golden-green foliage. Belonging to the Selaginellaceae family, this evergreen perennial is native to Africa and thrives in shaded woodland areas. The 'Glowstar' variety is named for its luminous golden-yellow leaves, which add a pop of color and texture to indoor and outdoor spaces alike. With its low-maintenance nature and tolerance of low light conditions, Fern Glowstar is an excellent choice for adding a touch of brightness and warmth to any garden or interior setting.

🌿 Botanical Name: Selaginella kraussiana 'Aurea' (Fern Glowstar)

💧 Care Level: Easy. Fern Glowstar is relatively low-maintenance and adapts well to a variety of growing conditions.

📏 Size: Fern Glowstar can reach a height and spread of 6 to 12 inches (15 to 30 cm), although size may vary depending on growing conditions and care.

☀️ Light: Place Fern Glowstar in low to moderate indirect light. It thrives in shaded or partially shaded areas and prefers protection from direct sunlight, especially during the hottest part of the day. If grown indoors, place it near a north- or east-facing window where it can receive filtered sunlight.

💧 Water: Water Fern Glowstar regularly to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water whenever the top inch (2.5 cm) of soil feels dry to the touch, especially during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce watering frequency in the winter months, but do not allow the soil to dry out completely.

💦 Humidity: Fern Glowstar prefers moderate to high humidity levels. Increase humidity by misting the foliage regularly, especially during dry indoor conditions or in arid climates.

🌡️ Temperature: Fern Glowstar prefers temperatures between 60°F to 75°F (15°C to 24°C). It is not frost-tolerant and should be protected from freezing temperatures.

🌱 Soil: Plant Fern Glowstar in well-draining, fertile soil with good moisture retention. A soil mixture rich in organic matter, such as peat moss or compost, is ideal. Ensure the soil is loose and well-aerated to promote healthy root growth.

🌱 Fertilizing: Feed Fern Glowstar with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength once a month during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing in the winter months, as the plant's growth slows down during this time.

🔄 Pruning: Prune Fern Glowstar as needed to maintain its shape and remove any dead, damaged, or yellowing fronds. Use sharp, clean scissors or pruning shears to make clean cuts, and avoid cutting into healthy green tissue.
