Microsorum Crocodylus | Crocodile fernRegular price $20.00 Save $-20.00
DESCRIPTION: Large native fern; long vibrant apple-green leaves with a snakeskin-like mosaic marking all over
USES: Underplanting in tropical shade gardens, in the forks of trees, wall crevices and rock cracks; as a houseplant while young.
PLANTING: Plant in free draining soil in a shaded sheltered frost-free location. Mulch after planting to retain moisture and regulate soil temperatures as the young plant establishes.
CARE: Keep moist during dry periods; reduce water in the winter. Ferns thrive in humid conditions and are happier to have wet leaves than wet roots. Apply a slow release fertiliser during spring and a half-strength diluted liquid fertiliser every 4-6 weeks during the warmer months. Re-pot container plants if they are outgrowing their pots. Protect from frost.
Assorted LithopsRegular price $15.95 Save $-15.95
Masters of disguise, living stones (Lithops spp.) get their name from their interesting rock like appearance. These cute, very low growing succulents also resemble little bums that are sneakily poking out of the soil, leaving the majority of the plant hidden underground.
In Autumn, flowers appear from the centre of the bums (like wonderful little farts) that bloom in the afternoon and close at night. After flowering new leaves burst through the centre of the existing leaves, growing in the opposite direction to the old leaves.
Lithops are intriguing to watch, feel and grow. So if you like big (plant) butts, order your Lithops today!
Lithops are specific with watering. They don’t like too much water and a light drink every two weeks from mid spring to summer will keep them happy.
If your Lithops are in flower, continue to give them a light drink until the flower starts to die off.
Once the flowers have started to shrivel, stop watering. Lithops like to be completely dry as they go through their growing stage.
Don’t be tempted to water the new leaves when they appear as this can stress out your little bums. Once the old leaves have completely dried up then you can commence watering again.
Position indoors in a well lit spot that receives up to 5-6 hours of morning to midday sun. Outdoors position so that they receive morning –midday sun and are protected from strong winds and afternoon sun.
