Add Unique Texture to Your House Plant Collection 

Why Crocodile Ferns?

The Crocodile Fern is known for its glossy, textured fronds that look a lot like its namesake animal’s tail! If you’re looking for a beautifully unexpected potted plant, look no further than this rare specimen.

Each plant is composed of a whorl of five- to 10-inch fronds, packed tightly together. The vibrant green foliage will catch the eye, whether you place it on a tabletop or on a shelf along side other plants. Your Crocodile fern will also thrive in a greenhouse or on a porch in warmer weather, as ferns appreciate humidity. 

The best part of this truly one-of-a-kind house plant? Its naturally textured foliage, which grows in a shiny, scaled pattern. It's sure to stand out in your house plant collection - and we promise you won't find this unique fern at your local plant store.

    Arrived looking so rough. Leaves were dark brown and tons of wholes in the leaves. Received a refund from customer service.

    Beautiful house plant but I did not think it would be so small.

    Crocodile Fern

    It was received burned and damaged. I was promptly given a credit and tossed the plant. I am sure if the plant was in perfect condition it would have been a lovely plant. But looking at the above photo, the plant was not as large as pictured.

    Fast Growing Trees Plant ExpertWe are so sorry that this one didn't travel well! Keep in mind that the plants on the site are mature plants and that a 6 inch will be a young, immature plant right now. Thank you for the review and we're glad we were able to make it right!
