    The sturdy, elongated, blue-green fronds of this Phlebodium emerge from creeping rhizomes, flushed with a velvety fur-like covering, and spill from the plant in a delightfully hapzard manner. Easy to grow, the ‘Golden Polypody’ makes a great addition to soften a dark corner or as a foil for other more exuberant houseplants.

    Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a simple nursery alternative), but we have a wide and wonderful range on our website to choose from.

  • Home care: Keep the compost moist (but not waterlogged) at all times, but this can be cut back a little in winter. If you can't place it in a humid atmosphere like your bathroom you can still grow this plant, just mist the leaves regularly with water and/or place the pot on a tray of damp pebbles.
