Microsorum diversifolium

The Microsorum diversifolium is also named Kangaroo-fern, and are epiphytic evergreens with dark green leathery fronds and long spreading hairy rhizomes. The kangaroo paw fern only grows to be about a foot tall but can spread out to 2-3 feet in width. The low-growing spreading habit makes this fern ideal as a ground-cover or in hanging baskets.

How To Care 

Light: Medium to bright indirect light. Keep in the shade outside.

Water: It does not need much water and direct light. Water a kangaroo paw fern when the top 50% of the soil has dried out.

Fertilizer: Fertilize once a month in the spring and summer with a balanced plant food diluted to 1/2 the recommended strength. You can also use an organic fish emulsion.

Temperature: This fern likes warmth, but it can stand a temperature till 16°C

Potting: Repot in the spring if the roots have filled the existing pot.

Pruning: Remove dead fronds as soon as they appear; cut the dead fronds off at the soil line. Clean the leaves with a damp cloth.
