Microsorum diversifolium - Kangaroo Paw Fern
Microsorum diversifolium is a unique fern in the Polypodiaceae family, known for its bright green fronds which grow from fuzzy, creeping rhizomes. Since these often extend over the edges of the pot, it's been given the nickname Kangaroo Paw Fern. The fronds of Microsorum diversifolium can get quite large, sometimes longer than a foot in length. Because their rhizomes spread quickly, the plant looks beautiful on a high shelf or in a hanging basket.
PLANT CARE• Light: Perfect for medium to bright, indirect light
