Here is another score from the Heathcote Botanical Sale that was held this past weekend here in Fort Pierce at Heathcote Botanical Gardens.

This is the Crocodyllus or Crocodile Fern ( Microsorum musifolium ). This is a very interesting fern that I have wanted for quite some time now. They just don't sell them in our local nursery's, and if they do they are very expensive. I am attracted to this fern because of the Crocodile skin look and texture of the leaves. I do not know where to put it yet but all that matters is that I have it!!

Here are some pictures of my new Crocodyllus or Crocodile Fern ( Microsorum musifolium ).

That is a cool fern. I guess they won't grow here in CA. That would be fun though(-:
