1.Good light, the starting point of your care

Let us not be mistaken by its origins. Despite coming from the South American jungles, this plant species does not tolerate direct sun. Naturally, it usually grows suspended from trees and receives filtered light through its foliage.

For this reason, the ideal is to always look for a bright space in which our plant can be in shade or semi-shade.

2. Warm temperature, essential for Phlebodium Aureum davana

As a good tropical plant, it needs to be in a space with warm temperatures. Reason why it has to be grown indoors in our latitudes. The heat of the interior of our house is ideal for him, but with certain caveats. On the one hand, it is important not to expose it to drafts. On the other hand, and continuing with the care of indoor plants in winter, no: it is not a good idea to place it near an artificial source of heat, such as radiators.

And what is the minimum temperature it supports? Never below 13 degrees. Doing so will jeopardize both your well-being and your life.

3. Regular irrigation and without excesses, important

The one that is, without a doubt, the most delicate care of this wonderful fern. Although it is a water-loving plant, you have to read the fine print. It always appreciates the slightly moist substrate, but flooding or excess watering are its great enemy.

We retrace our steps: it is a plant of jungle origin. Therefore, environmental humidity should not be lacking in its cultivation, especially if we live in a dry climate, and in hot months.

If we have a humidifier, we will not have to worry. If we do not have it, we will have to spray its leaves with soft or rain water. We can also create a humid atmosphere, placing a low plate with water that is always separated from the base of the pot.
