A Crocodile Fern is a member of the Fern family that originates from Australia. It gets its name from the scale like patterns found on its foliage.
Crocodile ferns are becoming increasingly popular due to their scaly leaves and many people are convinced of the reasons why to buy a crocodile fern but since they’re not as common as other houseplants people now want to know where to buy a crocodile fern.
Local Garden Centres Or Nurseries
If you’ve popped to your local plant shop and can’t find one of these ferns then that might be because the shop is just too small and the plant isn’t common enough to be stocked.
If this is the case then you need to think bigger. Instead of a plant shop go to a garden centre which usually stocks a whole load of different plants or you can even contact a nursery.
Find garden centres and nurseries in your area and ring up to see if they have this type of plant. If you don’t mind having to drive far you could even make a day of it.
IKEA Or Wallmart
Depending on where you live you might want to consider taking a trip to your local IKEA or Wallmart. Both of these shops stock
Order Your Crocodile Fern Online
Alternatively if this doesn’t work you can switch to online options. Now where you want to order from will probably depend on where you live. We have broken down our recommendations based on geography of English speaking countries.
Etsy – International
Etsy is a fantastic website that ships to lots of different countries and somewhere you can buy plants. They definitely have Crocodile Ferns available on their website, you just need to make sure they can be shipped to your location.
Hortology – UK
Hortology is a plant company from the UK that have a fantastic array of plants, the crocodile fern being one of them. If you were planning on buying within the UK then I would highly recommend using Hortology.
For all of those living in the USA you’ve probably already heard of Lowes and if not it’s a fantastic place to buy houseplants from. The selection is fantastic and you should be able to find your crocodile fern there.
These are some of the main websites you can use to find houseplants but of course there are others. If you’re restricted by geography then make sure you search for online plant shops in your country. Many businesses are international but as plants are living things, shipping internationally can become more difficult and not every company will do it.
