Complete Care Guide for Fern Crocodile (Microsorum musifolium ‘Crocydyllus’)

Fern Crocodile, scientifically known as Microsorum musifolium ‘Crocydyllus,’ is an intriguing fern variety with distinctive fronds resembling the scales of a crocodile. Follow this comprehensive care guide to ensure the health and vitality of your Fern Crocodile:

Light:

  • Filtered Light: Fern Crocodile thrives in bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the delicate fronds. Choose a location with filtered sunlight or artificial fluorescent light.

Soil:

  • Well-Draining Mix: Plant Fern Crocodile in a well-draining potting mix. A combination of peat moss, perlite, and pine bark works well. Ensure the soil stays consistently moist but not waterlogged.

Watering:

  • Consistent Moisture: Keep the soil consistently moist. Water when the top inch of the soil feels slightly dry. Maintain a humid environment by misting the plant regularly, especially if the air is dry.

Humidity:

  • Moderate to High Humidity: Fern Crocodile benefits from moderate to high humidity levels. Increase humidity by misting the plant, placing a tray of water nearby, or using a humidifier, especially in dry indoor conditions.

Temperature:

  • Warm Temperatures: Maintain temperatures between 65°F to 75°F (18°C to 24°C). Protect the plant from drafts, and avoid exposure to cold temperatures.

Fertilizing:

  • Regular Feeding: Feed Fern Crocodile with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Withhold fertilizer during fall and winter.

Pruning:

  • Remove Brown Fronds: Trim away any brown or dead fronds at the base of the plant using clean scissors or pruning shears. This encourages new growth and maintains the plant’s appearance.

Mulching:

  • Organic Mulch: Apply a thin layer of organic mulch, such as coconut coir or shredded bark, around the base of the plant to retain moisture and suppress weeds.

Potting:

  • Appropriate Containers: If growing Fern Crocodile in containers, choose pots with drainage holes and a well-draining potting mix. Repot when necessary to refresh the soil and provide room for growth.

Pest Control:

  • Monitor for Pests: Keep an eye out for pests such as scale insects and mealybugs. Treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

Winter Care:

  • Reduced Watering: During the winter months, slightly reduce watering frequency as the plant’s growth slows. Ensure the plant is protected from cold drafts.

Propagation:

  • Division:Propagate Fern Crocodile through division during the growing season. Separate healthy offsets with roots and plant them in individual containers.

Caution:

  • Non-Toxic: Fern Crocodile is considered non-toxic to pets and humans, making it a safe choice for households with pets and children.

By following these care instructions, you can enjoy the unique charm of Fern Crocodile. Adjust care based on the specific conditions of your garden or indoor space for optimal results.
