Microsorum thailandicum, commonly known as the 'Blue Oil Fern', is a rare epiphytic/ lithophytic fern native to Southeast Asia. This stunning fern produces thick, iridescent, teal coloured foliage that appears almost holographic under bright light. Extremely hard to come by, and very rarely offered, these beauties are sure to sell out fast.
Requires a shaded position outdoors, sheltered from harsh weather conditions. Being an epiphyte/ lithophyte, the Blue Oil fern requires a course potting mix, generally consisting of medium-course grade bark, perlite, and/ or coir chips. Water regularly, allowing the water to flow freely from the bottom of the pot (do not let sit in water). Fertilise with a half strength, general purpose fertiliser in spring to encourage rigorous growth.
