Scientific name: Microsorum diversifolium
Our Kangaroo Fern comes in a 20cm Hanging 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. They are also commonly called the Kangaroo Foot or Paw Fern.
The Kangaroo Fern 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. Our Kangaroo Fern comes in a Hanging Basket but would look just as cool re-potted into a table-top pot.
Follow these instructions to keep your Kangaroo Fern healthy and happy.
