This beaut Aussie fern does the lucky country proud with her snakeskin patterns - all the better for blending into her rainforest tree-branch home. She loves a misty, warm and humid spot - but not soggy soil - and somewhere shady so her pretty wavy leaves don't scorch.

Microsorum musifolium 'Lady Crocodyllus' - crocodile fern

APPEARANCE : Large native fern; long vibrant apple-green leaves with a snakeskin-like mosaic marking all over. Very similar to Crocodyllus, with more undulating leaves.
USE FOR : Underplanting in tropical shade gardens, in the forks of trees, wall crevices and rock cracks; as a houseplant while young.
CLIMATE : Protect from frost.
PLANTING : Plant in free draining soil in a shaded sheltered frost-free location. 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 half-strength diluted liquid fertiliser every 4-6 weeks during the warmer months. Re-pot container plants if they are outgrowing their pots.
HEIGHT & WIDTH : 1.5m H x 1.5m 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.
You can see an example in the image gallery.
