Hi Darryl
I grow about 10 species of these ferns, mainly from Ecuador. They are all from
2000-3000m altitude. I find they grow best on dead Dicksonia antarctica
trunks..a good fibrous free draining substrate. I water them with rainwater.
Although my glasshouse is heated, they only need 5-10 C (40-50F) in the
winter. In the summer if it gets too hot (greater than 25 C) they can flag and
wilt, so I run a hydrofogger to keep the humidity up....its great for all the
other epiphytic ferns too like Aglaomorpha, Microsorum, Pyrrosia etc. Let me
know if you need more help. Cheers, Valdy

Don't actually collect them, but have seen several.  They all seem
awfully touchy when it comes to cultural requirements, and the ones I've
seen on offer have been quite dear in price...

Does anyone collect this genus?

Researchers are looking at the section Squamipedia and would like
samples. This
section is characterized by peg-like aerophores on the rhizome next to
frond base. Here is a photo:

For elaphophiles, here are two sites:
