Positive BayAreaTropics On Sep 2, 2008, BayAreaTropics from Hayward, CA wrote:

Vastly underused fern in the bay area. Strong grower with thick fronds. In three years mine has grown fronds that were about 16" ~close to 4'. Hardy to 30f with no damage. And, is resistent to slugs and snails somewhat. Regular fertilizing and strong lighting will push the big growth. One of the big three epyphitic ferns for tree mounting along with Asplenium nidus and Platycerium bifurcatum.
Not easy to find and that's a shame, as one of these mounted in a tree with the other's would be as jungly as you can get.

We sell this plant at the nursery where I work. I own one and have found that if you allow it to dry between waterings, thatit will drop fronds. Otherwise very easy to grow, Good plant for beginners, grows relatively quickly, likes to be slighly root bound, and does well hanging. Very unusual to look at. Very good pic at exoticangels.com - which is where our company gets ours.

Attractive epiphytic fern- commonly used for hanging baskets and wall/tree mounts in warmer areas of Southern California. Has long, leather leaves with wide leaflets. Rhizomes are highly ornamental as they are so thick and fuzzy (up to 1" thick).
