Our Kangaroo Fern comes in a 12cm Nursery Pot. 

Guess where this super interesting plant comes from? Hint: The name gives it away. These hardy ferns are all the way from Australia (and some parts of New Zealand) and produce an array of dark green leathery fronds that are oddly shaped and vary in size and shape, adding that extra bit of texture to your indoor decor. They are also commonly called the Kangaroo Foot or Paw Fern. 

The Kangaroo Fern houseplant is a rhizomatous plant, which means that the Fern will send out thick root-like stems from which more leaf shafts will grow creating an interesting mix of shapes and textures and if left hanging can create a gorgeous trailing habit. Our Kangaroo Fern comes in a Hanging Basket but can be re-potted to create a fabulous tabletop feature.

These fantastic Ferns are also extremely easy to care for and due to their non-fussy nature, makes them ideal for a variety of living conditions, be it in a brightly lit humid bathroom to a medium-light slightly dryer living room. 

Please note: Kangaroo ferns have no known toxicity.

Follow these instructions to keep your Kangaroo Fern healthy and happy.

Water: Water thoroughly when at least 50% of the soil has dried out. Don't mist. 
Light: Medium indirect light. If displayed outdoors, keep in the shade.
Humidity: Medium to High Humidity is best.
Fertilize: Balanced Liquid Fertilizer, diluted by half, once a month in spring/summer. Do not fertilize in winter/autumn.
