Crocodile Fern

  • Botanical Name: Microsorum musifolium
  • Common Name(s): Crocodile Fern
  • Description: This safe for your Furry Friends plant, the Crocodile Fern has leaves that resemble the distinctive leathery appearance of crocodile skin. Glossy, long, tapered fronds of light green, with dark verdant green veins that create a mosaic pattern looking reptilian like, which is how the plant got its name. It can be a favorite among fern lovers. The Crocodile Fern is a must have for plant collectors who love interesting plants with leaf shape, color and texture. Also for being a low maintenance plant as well as a highly sought after fern.
  • Care: Your Crocodile Fern is a rare tropical plant, so it prefers bright indirect light, possibly an area near a window. You may also use the addition of grow lights if your home's lighting needs a little help or if you experience winter when the daylight is shorter. Water with rain or filtered water, never tap, when the top of the soil feels dry. Crocodile Ferns like moist soil but not overwatered. Water around the edges of the fern rather than in the middle. Fertilize once per month in its growing months, Spring until Fall. 
  • Add this Crocodile Fern to your Cat Safe Plants collection for its highly sought after fronds with a reptilian resemblance, for its low maintenance qualities, to stand out in your fern or complete plant collection, to add interest to your home decor by bringing in nature with color, texture and shape, and most of all, for choosing plants that appeal to you and are safe to be around your Furry Friends that you both can enjoy!
