Pellaea rotundifolia, the button fern, is a species of fern endemic to New Zealand, where it grows in scrub and forests. It is also a popular garden plant and house plant.


This fern's evergreen and prefers to stay moist during winter, but not waterlogged with soggy soil. Place it in a sunny position, but avoid full sun through a window if growing it as a houseplant. If placed outside, make sure it's protected in the midday sun.


The Button Fern is non-toxic to cats and dogs and is pet friendly.
