Botanical name - Microsorium musifolium 'Crocodyllus' / Polypodium musifolium 'Crocodyllus' 

Common name - Crocodile fern

Plant info - This Australian native, tropical fern is epiphytic in nature, which means it will grow in the fork of a tree, on a piece of wood or tucked into a corner of your garden. It has unusual long, elegant leaves that emerge from a dense clump and are marked with a crocodile skin-like pattern.

Plant care - Ferns in general thrive in humid, moist conditions and although many appear tough, they are delicate plants requiring a warm position and will not tolerate cold weather. Fern like moist but not wet soil. For this reason, bottom watering is recommended, or use a self watering pot, ensuring your soil is well draining. Ferns naturally grow on forest floors in dappled light, so are suited for moderately lit to lower light areas. Fertilise ferns at your own risk- they really don't like too much, so if you want to feed it, use a good quality liquid fertiliser at half the regular strength.

Growing in a 90 mm pot.
