If you already reserved your P. ridleyi with other species, do not worry, it’s reserved for you, I am just waiting for the other species to be available to contact you.
ATTENTION: Default shipping is whether the French Post (Colissimo) or UPS (Usually 2 days for France, 3-5 days for EU countries). It’s also possible to have the plants shipped by Chronopost Express 24h (usually 21,9€ for France, 29,9€ for neighboring countries and major cities), if you want to pay for Express shipping, please contact me giving me your post code and city so that I can give you the exact cost. I also have 72h heatpacks available for 3€. I ship on Mondays exclusively, to make sure the plants don’t remain stuck at the post office during a week end.
Habitat and Description : Epiphytic fern from SE Asia and very south after ny collectors. It grows at low altitude on well exposed tree branches. It seems that the shield of this species house ants in a symbiotic relationship.
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. It’s likely that this difficult reputation is due to import specimen and wild harvested ones.
