Microsorum musifolium 'Crocodyllus'

Crocodile Fern (S)


The crocodile fern's leaves have an apple-green tinge and snake-skin like patterning that make it a highly sought after plant for your indoor plant collection. Originating from Japan but also common in Australia, this fern is very hardy and easy to grow in garden beds and indoor spots from low to bright indirect light.


The Crocodyllus thrives in humid conditions and always prefer wet leaves more than wet roots. Best placed in low or medium indirect light. Keep moist during dry periods and reduce water in the winter when growth is much less. Apply a slow release fertiliser during spring and diluted liquid fertiliser monthly during the warmer months to aid in growth.
