Description: Fern 'Lemon Button', also known as Nephrolepis cordifolia 'Lemon Button', is a delightful and compact fern prized for its bright green, lemon-scented foliage and rounded growth habit. Belonging to the Nephrolepidaceae family, this evergreen perennial is native to tropical regions and thrives in moist, shaded environments. The 'Lemon Button' variety is named for its small, button-like leaflets and refreshing lemon fragrance, which add a touch of brightness and fragrance to indoor and outdoor spaces alike. With its low-maintenance nature and tolerance of low light conditions, Fern 'Lemon Button' is an excellent choice for adding a pop of color and fragrance to any garden or interior setting.

🌿 Botanical Name: Nephrolepis cordifolia 'Lemon Button' (Fern 'Lemon Button')

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

📏 Size: Fern 'Lemon Button' can reach a height and spread of 12 to 18 inches (30 to 45 cm), although size may vary depending on growing conditions and care.

☀️ Light: Place Fern 'Lemon Button' 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 'Lemon Button' 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 'Lemon Button' prefers moderate to high humidity levels. Increase humidity by misting the foliage regularly, especially during dry indoor conditions or in arid climates.

🌡️ Temperature: Fern 'Lemon Button' 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 'Lemon Button' 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 'Lemon Button' 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 'Lemon Button' 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.
