What makes Rio so special

Rio isn't big on haircuts or slick looks, oh no, his fronds are all over the place! You may think Rio doesn't really know what to do with all those leaves but he just really likes the out of bed look. One leave is elongated and another will have six branches. It's fascinating how Rio manages to distract us with all of this randomness but we love it. Speaking of random: Phlebodium Aureum is Rio's official name so there's that useless fact, but he's more commonly referred to as a Blue Star Fern. The fronds of this beautiful fern friend are fast growing and will require regular watering. Keep the soil moist at all times and Rio will thank you!
