Hi Wim

P. grande?  The real Philippines one or the Australian one now called P.

There are some growers here still persistent in using the old name which was
changed perhaps 60 years ago.

P. grande is real tropical, 10C and possible terminal, with 'two' spore
patches on the one fertile frond.  Whereas P. superbum is very tolerant
of -5C and has only one spore patch on the one fertile frond, but usually
has two of them.

Kindest regards

> This point of view would be to the great disappointment of quite a large
horticultural industry here. P. bifurcatum and to a much lesser extent, P.
"greande" are very popular indoor plants. Coming to the South, our suprise
is: wow, then can grow outside here!

to push the limit, now I'd like to try the wild thing. Davallia does the
trick already, why not other species?
