Fern Kangaroo

*Plant height will vary.

Quite exotic looking! The roots extend out of the pot, but that is normal, and what makes it unique. This plant grows to be only around 1ft tall but has the ability to grow 2-3ft wide. These are non poisonous!

The Dirt

Native to Australia and some parts of New Zealand. The scientific name, Microsorum Diversifolium, refers to the leaf forms. Some leaves are entire, some have indentations. They are dark green with some glossy shine.They can be grown outdoors but it must be in a warm zone. Water regularly for this plant to be happy. You can add moss for fertility and acidity. 


This plant likes a spot that gets low light or no direct sunlight at all, few plants are ok with this light condition. Pick a room with a north facing window, or a spot far from a bright window.


Water once a week. Before watering, feel the soil, top layer should be dry, if not dry wait a day or two. If the soil still is wet you risk giving the plant too much water, you don’t want it to rot.
