Microsorum pustulatum, Microsorum diversifolium - kangaroo fern

APPEARANCE : Large-leaved native fern, starts out entire and then divides into glossy lobed leaves as it grows. Dark brown-black stems contrast against the bright leaf colour. Grows alongside Blechnum ferns in the wild.
USES: Underplanting, shade gardens, in the forks of trees, wall crevices and rock cracks.
PLANTING: Plant in free draining soil in a shaded sheltered location, indoor plants should be rotated for optimum health. Mulch after planting to retain moisture and regulate soil temperatures as the young plant establishes.
CARE: Keep moist during dry periods; reduce water in the winter. Ferns thrive in humid conditions and are happier to have wet leaves than wet roots. Apply a slow release fertiliser during spring and a liquid fertiliser every 4 weeks during the warmer months, take care to dilute your solution to half the recommended dose to avoid burn. Re-pot container plants if they are outgrowing their pots. Protect from frost, though it may tolerate a light frost once established.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 30 cm H x 60 cm W.
YOUR PLANTS : These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide.
