How to care for Lemon Button Ferns

These plants prefer a tropical rainforest environment, but don’t do well if the substrate is saturated. They do well in a coir/orchid bark mix, and will also grow in cracks on cork bark. They will happily live in shaded areas of a terrarium but thrive under full spectrum plant growth LED lighting as this aids colour and growth. They can be fed using a terrarium safe biofertiliser such as Superworm Frass.
