A Houseplant With Interesting Foliage

Crocodile ferns (Microsorum musifolium) have lots of personality. Getting their name from their reptilian texture, these ferns resemble crocodile skin. … Typically found in Southeast Asia and parts of Australia, this fern thrives in humid, tropical environments.

From the range of ferns that can be grown indoors this plant has larger leaflets than most and gives that large full leaf foliage plant appearance.

This unique fern grows in the form of a deep rosette of large, shiny, spear-shaped fronds. New fronds unfurl from the center of the plant. The fern differs from many in appearance because of its spear-like shaped leaves.

Planting And Care


  • Fertilizer should only be given to the plant two to three times a year.

    Asplenium Nidus Crissie Fern Care

    Asplenium nidus can survive either as an epiphytal, or terrestrial plant, but typically grows on organic matter. A peat based potting mix is required. 2 parts peat and 1 part perlite (maybe a little less) is one mixture that will be fine. A peat based mixture with organic material is also good. The two main conditions to provide well is enough humidity and to protect the leaves from direct sunlight. It thrives in warm, humid areas in partial to full shade.
