Item description : One plant of Platycerium quadridichotomum in a 10cm pot. You receive a plant similar to the pictured one (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)
SHIPPING: It’s a pure tropical species, so from now on and until March, it’s highly recommended to purchase a 72h heatpack from the shop, without it I cannot guarantee the plant will arrive in good conditions. Also, for all the localities that are not neighboring France (and that includes South Italy, the South of Iberian Peninsula), it’s highly recommended to chose the Express shipping option. NO SHIPPING TO THE UK, IRELAND AND ALL THE MEDITERRANEAN ISLANDS
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 : A rare species from seasonally dry forests of Madagascar. When the dry season comes, plants become dormant and take a very shrivelled aspect. Once the rain season arrives, the plants rehydrates and resumes its growth. In cultivation, it’s advised to never let the plant go into dormancy as very often the plants fail to come back from dormancy.
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.
Cold hardiness : Purely tropical species.
