Kangaroo Paw Fern

Kangaroo Paw Fern (Microforium diversifolium)

I had to remove some leaves that were getting a brown dry spotting, but it seems to be alright otherwise. Still showing

Looks lovely GT. What is the plant in front of it?

Nematanthus gregarias....(spelling) the goldfish plant. It about four feet long, needs cut back to fill in where it is thinning. Its time, deep winter, it'll get sunlight again first week of february.

Yes, my goldfish plant is looking a bit straggly too. Love the fern.

Thanks GIllian. I really enjoy this fern too. I'm hoping the goldfish will fill in when I cut it back.
