Microsorum crocodyllus

Mature tubestock, premium and ready to plant!


If you’re more of a foliage than flowers person this leafy show stopper is for you.

Microsorum crocodyllus is not a crocodile but a fern-like plant who like his mates to call him The crocodile fern (sounds tougher)

Its fronds are wrinkled, dimpled and leathery to touch which reminds people of crocodile skin. His light green leaves are marked with dark green veins which can grow up to a metre in length.

This is a truly unique plant that you’re not going to see very often. It makes a stunning gift and a top pick ‘man plant’ for an office desk.

Crocodyllus is a tropical style plant that you’ll just wanna touch, but he isn’t fussy. Just regularly water when the soil is dry, keep him in indirect bright light, and watch those fronds lengthen. Read our blog for more help if you need it!

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I rock a windowsill pot with my interesting colours and texture, and I look great in a tropical garden.

  • I grow to: I can reach a metre in all directions.

  • Where to place me: Anywhere light and bright indoors – I especially love the humid conditions of a bathroom. Outside I need full shade to protect my fronds.

  • How far to space me: Give me a metre so I can stretch.

  • Soil Conditions: I love rich, free-draining potting mix.

  • Watering conditions: I need regular water but don't let my feet sit in water as my roots will rot
