Thank you both! And, yes, it’s cute, and for 5 $ I just couldn’t leave it there… at the laundry 😜
@MariansOasis it’s definitely this one, you cleared out any doubtβ˜οΈπŸ™Œ
@Ales $5πŸ‘ good deal!
I just got Albo Fern. Very similar. I love Albo πŸ₯°

@MariansOasis going to dive into this fern worldπŸ’š
Tread carefully, they are finicky! I’ve got a Blue Star which is easy, and a Button fern which is cute but quite a princess πŸ‘Έ
@MariansOasis going to temporarily place it in a glass cookie jar (which I intended to use for an actual terrarium but I’m too scared to create it yet) with some other humidity loving micro ones I got recently… to try and fight the NYC heating system
