Happy kangaroo
The name says it all. The kangaroo fern jumps out at you. Great as a potted plant or as a hanging plant! The decorative houseplant cheers up any room. The fern is easy to care for. Always keep the potting soil moist, without letting the plant stand in water. Spray the leaves occasionally. That way, they won't dry out. Place the plant in full or partial shade.

Kangaroo Fern (Microsorum diversifolium) is supplied in a standard breeders pot. If you pot it up, use humus rich potting compost. Or, just stand the pot as it is inside a pretty planter, or even just on a saucer - very practical really as drain-off can remain temporarily in the saucer. Only water again when the drain-off is absorbed or evaporated. This saucer (or in the base of the planter) should be dried up before you water again but do keep the potting compost moist.
Stand your Microsorum diversifolium in a warm spot out of direct sunlight - preferably never under 10° C . In the living room, the best temperature is around 22-25° C but it can handle things well if it gets cooler. In a cooler spot it will require less watering.


Tropical Kangaroo Fern (Microsorum diversifolium) is a genuine rainforest plant that doesn't like full sunlight! Likes to be kept nice and humid but will be alright if the air is dryer too. Do not however, allow the potting compost to dry out and water at least weekly, onto the potting compost (so not the plant).
This fern grows best when it’s fed every 3 weeks with house plant food for leafy plants.
During the winter it will appreciate being kept dry and only start feeding and watering again in spring.
