5. Phlebodium

It may not look like it, but the phlebodium is really a species of fern. The Latin word phelbs means ‘nerf’ and the shape of the plant shows you why. Besides that the phlebodium is very nice on your bedside table or in the bathroom, a single branch is the perfect partner in crime of flowers in our RESORT bouquet!

#ProTip : water the Phlebodium on the side of the plant. If you do this in the middle, it can cause a bald heart.
