Previously listed as P. aureum. A striking fern with large, coarsely cut glaucous bluish grey fronds. Likes to grow in a shallow pot, where its hairy rhizomes will eventually creep over the edge.

Great for a shady corner or bathroom. The bluish appearance on the fronds is due to a light layer or epicuticular wax. This can burn off if the plant gets too much sun so keep away from direct sun. This fern also likes reasonable humidity and is well suited to being grown in a bathroom.
