Microsorum thailandicum - Blue Oil Fern
Product Code: 2024020623660

The most striking feature of the Blue Oil Fern is the iridescent blue colour it can develop on fronds.

This plant has lots of fresh growth and is well rooted. It prefers higher humidity however it must not be over watered as it will start to lose its fronds.

There are some fresh spores on the underside of fronds which could be removed carefully with a paint brush if you wished to try to germinate.

These plants are epiphyte (grow on other plants) so are great for mounting onto moss boards in a humid cabinet.

This plant will need to be placed in bright light to encourage the blue sheen.

Microsorum roots are very delicate and should not be disturbed as they take an incredible amount of time to root.
