RE: Ants


It will grow without the ants.

Although not easy, it can be cultivated like a lecanopteris.

Subject: Re: [ferns] Ants


I have just done some searching on Solanopteris brunei,interesting plant!
Solanopteris brunei
  a.. Description: Rhizome tubers are complex rhizomatous sacs infested with
Azteca and other ants. Ants supposedly mine sugar-laden tissues in the
rhizome
tubers to hollow them out for occupation, and bring in debris later
exploited
by roots entering sacs.
Has anyone tried growing it, and can it live without the ants?
