Item description : One beautiful specimen of Platycerium coronarium in a 10cm pot. You receive a plant similar to the pictured one (they’re all very similar and top quality)
All the Platycerium I offer were grown by myself from spores or offsets in France, unless stated otherwise. These plants are much easier and healthier than the ones offered imported directly from SE Asia that often go into shock because they were in a very different climate.
Habitat and Description : Epiphytic fern from SE Asia, it reaches impressive dimensions and has very long fertile fronds that sometimes take the shape of ribbons; Very tropical looking species. The name “coronarium” means “crowned”
Care : Easy to grow but prefers acidic water, if your water is too alkaline it’s better to bath your plant in rainwater or distilled water. Contrary to popular belief, this species is not very difficult to cultivate. These for sale grow at 22-28°C and 50-60% humidity. T
Cold hardiness : Purely tropical species.
