The Kangaroo Fern is a small fern that propagates from long rhizomes (creeping stems) and is also known as Microsorum diversifolium.  The foliage consists of simple fronds, 5cm - 20cm in length that are sometimes divided into two or three long lobes and have a leathery texture and dark green colour. The name Microsorum relates to the small spore cases (sori) that form on the undersides of the fronds. All our potted plants come in compostable coir pots - read more here.
