Item description : One young Platycerium superbum sporeling. You receive a plant similar to the pictured ones (it’s unnecessary to ask me for a specific plant from the pictures as they only serve as exemple and are not the exact same plants that are for sale, they are all of top quality and I select only the best to be shipped)
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 Australia that can get huge. They’re found on trees in half shade to full sun. It makes two kinds of fronds : the « shields » for photosynthesis and rhizome protection and « fertile » fronds for reproduction.
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. When the plant is well acclimated, you can put it in half shade or full sun. This species can tolerate drought to some extent but needs plenty of water during the growing season.
Cold hardiness : Moderately cold hardy (-2°C) for short periods.
