Nephrolepis cordifolia ‘Duffii‘, known as the Lemon Button fern, is a small variety of Boston fern. Lemon Button gets its name from the unique round leaflets that grow from its long stems and the very faint lemon scent its foliage exudes during growing months. They grow best in medium indirect light, but can live in bright or low light conditions, just give it some time to adjust. Lemon Buttons should be watered regularly so that the soil doesn’t dry out, however, take care to let the soil drain during watering to prevent root rot. They do best in high humidity areas such as kitchens and well-lit bathrooms or will be happy with a regular misting. Lemon Buttons are perfect for beginner plant parents just starting out, for those with less natural light in their living spaces.
They grow best in medium indirect light, but can live in bright or low light conditions when given the chance to adjust.

Our Classic Collection features a tapered terracotta design in two sizes and three styles highlighted by its beautiful color and lush green foliage.The Classic is made of terracotta: a porous, breathable material that allows for water and air circulation in the soil and creates a healthy environment for the plant. The word terracotta can trace its roots back to the Latin words “terra cocta” meaning baked earth. This clay-based pot minimizes over-watering and helps plants maintain healthy roots by absorbing excess moisture from the soil. In addition to its health benefits terracotta is known for developing a unique patina that gives it a beautiful and timeless look as it ages. Inspired by the minimalist lifestyle, this planter is simplistic, tasteful, and authentic.
