Plant Care
light

Crocodile Ferns prefer lighting that mimics the bright, indirect sunlight that they’d normally receive growing under a canopy of trees. Avoid placing your fern in direct sunlight, as too much will burn its leaves.

water

Crocodile Ferns love water. You should water your fern thoroughly and consistently, making sure its soil stays moist, without waterlogging your plant. A mix of peat moss and perlite should keep the soil draining well. To maintain a level of humidity for your tropical plant, you can also mist your fern daily, place it on a tray with pebbles so a small amount of water will evaporate beneath it, or take your fern into the bathroom while you shower for a spa day.

temperature

Crocodile Ferns prefer temperatures of 64⁰F to 73⁰F. As a tropical plant, it does not handle cold well. Keep your fern away from drafts, air conditioners or heating vents that might mean a drastic change in temperature.

fertilizer

Feed a diluted, water-soluble fertilizer that is specifically formulated for ferns once a month during spring and summer to promote healthy growth. Too much fertilizer can burn your plant, causing burn marks on the foliage.
