Plant Care Guide for Kangaroo Paw Fern:

  1. Light Requirements: Place your Kangaroo Paw Fern in bright, indirect light. It thrives in moderate to high light conditions but can tolerate lower light levels. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the foliage.

  2. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil feels slightly dry. Ensure that the pot has proper drainage to prevent overwatering.

  3. Temperature and Humidity: Maintain a room temperature between 60-75°F (15-24°C). This fern prefers higher humidity levels, so misting the plant or using a humidifier can be beneficial.

  4. Soil and Fertilization: Use a well-draining potting mix designed for ferns. Feed your Kangaroo Paw Fern with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).

  5. Pruning and Maintenance: Trim any brown or damaged fronds to encourage new growth and maintain the plant's shape. Regularly clean the leaves to prevent dust buildup.

  6. Toxicity: The Kangaroo Paw Fern is non-toxic to pets and humans, making it a safe choice for households with pets and children.

  7. Pests: While relatively resistant to pests, occasional mealybugs or scale insects may appear. Use our Damn Bug! Organic Pesticide to treat and prevent any pest issues.
