Rio's survival guide

Puts the fun in Fern

Looking for an air purifying pro? The Phlebodium is a great choice. Rio is a thirsty fella so be sure to give him plenty of water but no direct sunlight. Native to the subtropical regions of South America, Rio is often situated underneath the canopies of large trees. His pretty green fronds can last up to two years each!

4 inch pot
Regular water needed
Once every two years
12 inches tall
Low light
Not toxic
Once a month in summer

How to care for Rio

Rio isn't big on haircuts or slick looks, oh no, his fronds are all over the place! You may think Rio doesn't really know what to do with all those leaves but he just really likes the out of bed look. One leave is elongated and another will have six branches. It's fascinating how Rio manages to distract us with all of this randomness but we love it. Speaking of random: Phlebodium Aureum is Rio's official name so there's that useless fact, but he's more commonly referred to as a Blue Star Fern. The fronds of this beautiful fern friend are fast growing and will require regular watering. Keep the soil moist at all times and Rio will thank you!
