Item description : One beautiful specimen of Platycerium stemaria in a 15cm pot. The plant for sale is the plant on pictures.
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 Africa and very sought after by collectors. It’s closely allied to Platycerium elephantotis with similar shields but the fertile fronds are much longer and more divided
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. To grow like P. bifurcatum and P. superbum regarding the watering schedule.
Cold hardiness : Purely tropical species.
