Common name - Crocodile Fern 

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

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.

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 recommended strength.

CAN I PICK UP IN STORE?

If you would like to pick up your order from our store there is no additional charge. Pick up hours are Fridays and Saturdays from 10 am - 4 pm, and Sunday from 11 am - 2 pm. Once notified your order is ready to be picked up please ensure that you pick up your order by 2pm Sunday. The store is closed Mon-Wed so plants not picked up are not able to be cared for and are left there at buyers risk. Orders placed after midnight Friday may not be available until the following week.

HOW DO YOU SHIP THE PLANTS?

Most of the time the plants are sent in their nursery pots. Occasionally, due to large plants or a large order we may have to ship bare rooted. We use compostable plastic bags and 100% biodegradable 'foam peanuts'. We also sometimes recycle non biodegradable materials that have been used when orders have been shipped to us.

There are no updates until your order ships. Orders placed before midnight Saturday ship the following Mon - Wed, excluding public holidays. You will have the option to track your order via sms or email updates. 

HOW LONG DOES MY ORDER TAKE TO ARRIVE?

We ship every Monday through Wednesday via Auspost. The cut off time for next weeks orders is midnight Saturday. Depending on where you live, most orders arrive within two days, however, delays may be experienced due to Auspost.

WHERE DO YOU SHIP?

We can ship anywhere in Australia excluding NT, WA, and TAS. Unfortunately those states have quarantine laws which do not allow us to ship there. For those living in NT, WA, and TAS, you may wish to contact https://homeofhouseplants.com.au/ or https://www.rareplants.net.au/ to find out about their concierge service. Many of our customers regularly use them. Plants sent via a concierge service will usually ship bare rooted.

WHAT IF MY ORDER ARRIVES DAMAGED?

99.9% of orders arrive in great condition. If however, your plants or pots arrive in poor condition, please send us as many pics as possible- including the box if it's damaged- and send them to us at info@greenbeanz.com.au so we can work out a solution.
