Looking for an easy tropical looking houseplant? Rabbit’s Foot Fern with its bold blue green leaves that reach a height of 2′ is a perfect choice. It spreads by extending its furry “paw” like roots across the soil and over the sides of containers. We put it to great use in our outdoor shady containers. Phlebodium are epiphytes (plants that can grow on the surface of another and derives moisture and nutrients from the air, rain, water or accumulated surrounding debris). Consider this an added bonus as it doesn’t need to be kept inconstantly moist soil.
Exposure: Part shade/shade
