A crocodile fern is an increasingly popular houseplant with its scaley foliage and by being relatively easy to care for.
Here are some of the reasons why we think you should get a Crocodile Fern as your next houseplant.
A Crocodile Plant Has A Unique Texture
The thing that sets the Crocodile Fern apart from other ferns is its unique texture. The pattern on its foliage is like the scales of a crocodile or alligator.
This makes your plant a stylish addition to your home as well as bringing the added benefit of having a houseplant with it.
Crocodile Ferns Aren’t Common Houseplants
Another great reason to consider getting a Crocodile Fern is because they aren’t very common houseplants which will make the fern in your home rather unique.
Monsteras and Peace Lilies are super popular so why not get yourself something that sets you apart from everybody else.
They’re Pretty Easy To Take Care Of
One of the good things about these plants is that if you follow the Crocodile Fern care guide they’re relatively easy to look after and aren’t as sensitive as other plants so they’re a good houseplant to get if you’re just starting your botanical journey.
They Improve Air Quality
Another great reason to get a fern is that they improve the quality of the air you’re breathing in. When you live in a city the quality of the air can deteriorate rapidly so its important that the air you breathe in is clean and good for you.
Getting a Crocodile Fern is a great way to improve the quality of the air you’re breathing in in your home.
Why Not To Get A Crocodile Fern
There are also some reason you may want to consider not getting a Crocodile Fern. We personally don’t think they should put you off but they might be important for you to consider.
They Require Humidity
One reason you may not want to get a Crocodile Fern is that its a plant that requires humidity. Which means that if you don’t live in a humid environment you’ll either have to invest in a humidifier or make the effort to mist your plant every day.
They Can Be Hard To Come By
Crocodile Ferns aren’t a common plant to come by just yet so you might have a difficult time finding one. This can put people off who prefer to buy their plants from garden centres rather than having to order them online.
