With fronds that hang like green streamers, Phlebodium Blue Star (the Blue Star Fern) is a low-maintenance indoor plant that’s easy to keep. With its origins in the rainforests of South America, this moisture-loving fern will thrive in a humid kitchen or bathroom.

Phlebodium even appreciates an occasional luke-warm shower to clear gathered dust from its leaves. If you’re planning to group a few houseplants as a decorative feature, you’ll find that the Blue Star Fern’s mass of blue-tinged leaves will form an attractive backdrop.
