Crocodile Fern | Microsorum musifolium ‘Crocodyllus’

I have mid green, fresh looking fronds that resemble those of a crocodile’s skin.

Useful to know:

Origin

I am originally from New Guinea & Malaysia.

Height/Growth

I am a fast grower and can grow up to 2m tall.

Light

Like most ferns, I like low levels of light or indirect sunlight. A northern or Eastern facing windowsill will provide the best exposure.

Water

I like to be kept moist, so water me whenever my soil feels dry to touch, but make sure I have adequate drainage.

Temperature

Keep me away from draughts and in temperatures of between 18 and 24°C.

Feeding

Please feed me diluted fertiliser once a month during the growing season.

Grooming

Take off any unsightly leaves as required and trim off crowded fronds to encourage air flow and reduce the chance of fungal infections.

Care

I like humidity so please occasionally spray me with water.

Toxicity

Good news: I am pet friendly!

Fact

I am an epiphyte which means in my natural surroundings I grow directly on the trunks of trees. Click here to buy a similar plant - Kangaroo Fern.
