Re: platycerium fosters no 1

This cultivar has a couple of photos in Roy Vail's "Platycerium Hobbyist 
Handbook". One of them shows a frond rather palmate with additional forking 
toward the tips. It is named for Bert Foster, a bromeliad grower in Florida.

The other photo shows the habit, but the reproduction is poor. I would guess 
the fronds are around 15" in length. No further information is given.

This book is available from Desert Biological Publications, Box 722, Mena, AR
