Plant list - Ferns

Tasmania has more than 50 species of fern, ranging from the mighty treeferns to small, floating Azolla.

All ferns that we sell are adapted to moist habitats, and some are suitable for indoor plants. These are indicated below with an asterisk.

All ferns are sold in 75 mm pots, and most in 140 mm pots. Large specimens of Dicksonia antarctica (height 60 cm and 1 m) are also available.
